I even have a couple of friends from Nova Scotia who came to Canada through the underground railroad in the 1800s and they said the word meant nothing to them.

i'm calling shenanigans
Now that I'm looking at this I didn't realize what he just say. The 1800's!! thats a long time.


I meant the blacks currently in East Preston Nova Scotia come from the blacks that crossed the border with the underground railroad. Obviously I don't know anyone that was actually part of the underground railroad.


Actually let me make  correction. I learned this a while ago and forgot about it. Most blacks in Nova Scotia aren't from the Underground Railroad. Some are, but most of them had fought on the loyalist side of the American Revolution and were given land in Canada as compensation, like all loyalists were given.
