Travel back to the Civil War era to see and hear how African Americans Union soldiers made significant contributions.  In celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, the tour focuses on the “momentous epoch” as this time period was called by Reverend Henry McNeal Turner (1834-1915). Join historian C.R. Gibbs and visit Civil War-era fortifications in the District and Virginia, review the role of African American Union soldiers, and stop by former contraband encampments.
