How did slaves find their way north to freedom?


Escaping slaves used signs in nature to find their way north. They followed the moon and the north star. At daytime they followed moss on trees. To be hidden, they stayed in safe houses, or slept at daytime so that they can get to freedom at night when no one can see them.
They crossed rivers so dogs can’t scent them.
