The U.S. Corps of Engineers, in cooperation with the Southwest Mississippi/Louisiana UGRR Association and Miles College, Birmingham, AL, will conduct historical and archival research to identify and verify those sites associated with Underground Railroad operations along the lower Mississippi River corridor. The results of this research will hopefully lead to National Register as well as state and local designations of those properties affiliated with the UGRR. Furthermore, the research materials will be used for developing educational publications and activities as part of our commitment to community outreach.
