From battles to espionage, and harrowing tales of escape, this tour emphasizes the fact that African Americans, both enslaved and free, were present, active, and of critical importance in the American Revolution. This tour highlights the incredible achievements and contributions of Ona Judge, James Armistead Lafayette, and Elizabeth Freeman in the American Revolution, and how their participation resulted in the eventual abolishment of the historic institution of slavery in America. This tour will also explore George Washington’s changing relationship with the practice of slavery both privately and politically. In honor of Black History Month, this tour is FREE every Saturday in February at 3:00pm.
You can also reserve a private group tour below at any time or date starting February 1.
