It was not a real railroad, but a system of safe houses or “stations” where different people “conductors” would hide escaped slaves and show them the way to the next safe place on the route.
Otherwise, the representatives of the town of Dresden were unmoved. The group left the municipal building in defeat. While some townspeople were also in favor of the NUA's motion, most just didn't care. They believed that the problem would go away if they just left it alone. The town council truly represented Dresden's citizens and those citizens wanted to go about their own business, tend to their gardens, sweep their porches, cut their lawns, and visit with friends. The last thing they wanted was to draw attention to a situation that made them uncomfortable.
Big cars made by Ford and General Motors massive vehicles made of steel and chrome roared down the length of St. George Street.
