OBERLIN, Ohio- The Underground Railroad is a part of American history, with Northeast Ohio playing a prominent role.
WGN America's new series, 'Underground,' shows a group of courageous men and women fighting for their lives. 'Underground' is centered around a courageous blacksmith, Noah, as he organizes a small group of fellow slaves and pieces together a daring plan of escape across hundreds of miles to freedom.
As we count down to Wednesday night's debut, FOX 8's Wayne Dawson shows us how Lorain County was a key stop on the Underground Railroad.
