Fighting for Freedom Tour

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.

Women of the Revolutionary War Tour

On this 60 minute tour you will explore the incredible stories of women who played a pivotal role in the Revolution, from patriotic women fighting for independence, to loyalist women who fought to suppress the rebellion; and African American and Native American women whose future and security were caught in the cross fire. As war played out in the streets of their towns and sometimes on their very doorstep, the Patriots could not have defeated the British without the participation of women in the Revolution. Learn about the untold stories of women like Agent 355 of the Culper Spy Ring, express rider Sybil Ludington, and Deborah Sampson; who disguised as a man, fought bravely for the Continental Army.
