Underground Railroad Historic Panel Discussion
July 9 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$10.00 – $12.00
Come and find out why the Underground Railroad was so significant in New York State, why we are now discovering so much about it, and how historic sites in the Underground Railroad Consortium of New York State are telling its remarkable story. Hear the voices of some of the courageous men and women who risked their lives to escape from slavery. Share the experience of ordinary people – black and white, men and women, old and young, rich and poor – who created the extraordinary Underground Railroad network through New York State.
