Some of the youth from the URHPCR Young Abolitionists participated in the Civil War Encampment at Schuler Flatts this weekend. We also had a table at the event where we passed out lots of literature about the Underground Railroad and our organization. Our approach to the UGRR stresses documentation, local people, and African American abolitonists, which is different from what most others do. The young people joined in with the other re-enactors. We have been developing a unit re-enacting the 26th USCT Infantry. Our youths joined in with the NY 125th Infantry volunteers for this weekend.
