Beyond the Shackles: The Role of African-Americans During the Civil War

By the mid-nineteenth century, not every African-American was enslaved; some were spies, some abolitionists, some worked on the Underground Railroad, and some even served in the military including onboard the USS Monitor. Join Museum Educator Wisteria Perry to learn more about African-Americans and their crucial role during the Civil War.

Free with Museum admission.
