Eluned Origins/Meaning: Follow the Drinking Gourd (132* d) RE: Help: Follow the Drinking Gourd meanings 22 Apr 00


This is one great thread!! I've always thought that the song dated back to the actual time of the underground RR, and from what Barry Finn said early on, I would think that was definitely true. However, McGrath of Harlow's questions made me wonder; do we really know this to be true? Could this be simply be a mistaken belief, like the story told about Washington and the cherry tree, or the tale that Lincoln was born in a log cabin?
