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. This tour highlights 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 will also explore George Washington’s changing relationship with the practice of slavery both privately and politically.

This tour is FREE with regular museum admission and takes place every Saturday in the month of February at 3pm
