Subject: Was there a Huguenot Underground Railroad?
Date: Mon, 3 May 2004 22:00:58 -0400


Prior to the American Civil War, escaping slaves used the "Underground Railroad," a series of people, homes, and hideaways on their way to the northern states. Was there something similar for fleeing Huguenots after 1685? Why did so many go to Germany? Was it safer than going to the coast? How did they get from, for example, Frankfort to London? Were their people sympathetic to their plight who helped them with hiding places and food as they traveled through France?
