Bringing awareness of the African
American role during the Civil War period has been a passion of mine. I do this as a Civil War era re-enactor with the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Regiment Company A and Colored Ladies Christian Relief Society. As such, I've had the pleasure and privilege of working with the Park Rangers, who will lead this interactive and enlightening tour. Bring your family and friends along on this special journey.
