Join us on Monday, August 10 at 6:30 p.m. for a free virtual happy hour program with Wisteria Perry, manager of interpretation and community outreach as she co-hosts with The American Civil War Museum about the numerous roles African Americans had in American society in the mid-19th century.

About this presentation: By the mid-19th century, not all African Americans were enslaved. Some were free, some were abolitionists and spies, and some were part of the Underground Railroad. Others became the first African Americans to contribute and serve aboard the US Navy’s first ironclad, the USS Monitor.
