The nonrelativistic propagator is derived by formulating the generalized Aharonov-Bohm effect, valid for any gauge group in a general multiply connected manifold, as a gauge artifact in the universal covering space. The loop phase factors and the free homotopy propagators arise naturally. An explicit expression for the propagator when there are two solenoids present is given.
