Celebrate Black History Month with a special docent-led public 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.

Learn about 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 also explores George Washington’s changing relationship with the practice of slavery, both privately and politically.

Tours are offered at 1pm and 2pm.
