From Slavery to Freedom

The interpretive program, "From Slavery to Freedom," has been presented at the African American Civil War Memorial Museum in Washington, DC, for the last two years. This program commemorates those African American freedom fighters that escaped from slavery and eventually enlisted in the Union Army. Soldiers who used the UGRR like Joshua Dunbar and Garland White, to escape to freedom are memorialized in the presentations. Others soldiers and sailors who escaped from slavery to join the fight for freedom such as William Gould and William Henry Singleton are also memorialized. Visitors are informed of the extraordinary efforts these men went through to achieve their freedom and American citizenship.
