Slavery and the Underground Railroad with a Focus on the Nation's Capital

"Slavery and the Underground Railroad with a Focus on the Nation's Capital," is a traveling trunk and associated curriculum available to teachers in DC, MD, and VA. Beginning in 2001, staff from Decatur House, the Octagon, the National Park Service, and the White House Historical Association sought grants and developed teacher workshops to plan a traveling trunk and associated curriculum which would deal with enslavement and the Underground Railroad in the Nation's Capital. The free program is aimed at fourth to eighth graders. In addition to loans to schools, the trunk and curriculum is used at the White House Visitor Center.
