White Abolitionists, Black Fighters of Waverly

 In honor of Veterans Day the Park is excited to host this illustrated talk by Jim Remsen, author of a 2017 history book entitled Embattled Freedom: Chronicle of a Fugitive-Slave Haven in the Wary North which recounts the region’s Underground Railroad era. Centered on Waverly, the book traces the experiences of the fugitive slaves who escaped southern bondage and dared to openly build new lives in the North. Following the talk participants are invited to a book sale and signing at the nearby B&B restaurant. Call 570-945-7110 to register.
