Adventures of Harriet Tubman and the UGRR in Dorchester County, Maryland step-on-guide tour guides people to exhibits, homes and home sites, meeting houses, mills, courthouses, roads, churches, wharves, waterways, fields, forests, and other significant landscapes that relate to and illustrate the real life stories of the region's own specific Underground Railroad, including the people who used it, operated it, and the those who sought to destroy it in the decade leading up to the Civil War. The tour guides visitors through a variety of natural environments that were both barriers and pathways to freedom. Through a very personalized experience the Merediths offers visitors the opportunity to learn about the UGRR, Harriet Tubman, resistance to slavery, and African American history in the region, and discover how ordinary people in a southern slaveholding community faced extraordinary challenges to help others secure their freedom.
