The Appalacians are beautiful but the settlers found out it could be a very tough place to settle.

From the latest American History Magazine - by Gene Santaro - Touring the Erie Canal


http://www.historynet.com/touring-th...the-erie-canal

excerpt
The 'Burned Over District'
Palmyra, center of 1820s religious revivalism so fierce the area was known as the "Burned Over District," lies nine miles east. Mormon prophet Joseph Smith was born here, memorialized by his house and the Historic Palmyra Museum, both set in a typical canal-town center of grand frame houses from the glory days. Packed with vintage goods and memorabilia, the Phelps General Store Museum zestfully reincarnates how Americans shopped and what they bought before malls and superstores and the internet. Past and present coincide charmingly at an old lock and aqueduct spanning the canal in Palmyra Macedon Park, where a waterfall feeds a favorite local fishing hole. The rustic towpath led us over the Aldrich Change Bridge, which let horses and mules cross the canal without being unhitched from their barges—one of only two such original crossover bridges left.
Ideas have always travelled with trade, and the Erie Canal disseminated new unsettling beliefs. The Burned Over District's fundamentalist fervor also fired movements for social reform like abolitionism and early feminism. So it's no coincidence that twenty-five miles southeast of Palmyra, Seneca Falls hosted the 1848 convention of abolitionist women who launched the suffragist movement; they are honored in the National Women's Hall of Fame. The Cayuga-Seneca Canal, an Erie offshoot, winds through the picture-postcard downtown and unfinished Women's Rights Historical Park; we ate lunch overlooking it from the pleasant deck behind the friendly Downtown Deli. Wineries and dining spots stipple the shores of beautiful Cayuga Lake, open to boating, fishing, and swimming. In nearby Waterloo, unpretentious Abigail's serves dependable Italian dishes and fresh seafood with an all-you-can-eat salad bar.

From historynet.com/America's Civil War - Notes from the Underground Railroad

http://www.historynet.com/underground-railroad

excerpt
Underground Railroad summary: The Underground Railroad was the term used to describe a network of meeting plages, secret routes, passageways and safe houses used by slaves in the U.S. to escape slave holding states to northern states and Canada. Established in the early 1800s and aided by people involved in the Abolitionist Movement, the underground railroad helped thousands of slaves escape bondage. By one estimate, 100,000 slaves escaped from bondage in the South between 1810 and 1850. Aiding them in their flight was a system of safe houses and abolitionists determined to free as many slaves as possible, even though such actions violated state laws and the United States Constitution.
Underground Railroad Facts

Approximately 1780

The Beginnings Of the Underground Railround

Even before the 1800s, a system to abet runaways seems to have existed. George Washington complained in 1786 that one of his runaway slaves was aided by "a society of Quakers, formed for such purposes." Quakers, more correctly called the Religious Society of Friends, were among the earliest abolition groups. Their influence may have been part of the reason Pennsylvania, where many Quakers lived, was the first state to ban slavery.
