An Impressive Lesson for My Children

The enormous worldwide popularity of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, makes the Alcotts very eloquent spokespersons for any cause that they advocated. The living history presentation "An Impressive Lesson for My Children", connects the Alcotts personally to Abolition and the leaders of the Abolition movement and sends a powerful message to any audience. This is particularly true for young people, since the Alcott sisters were children in this house. At the Wayside, the impact, especially of the living history program, is increased by the fact that you are at the site where the family is known to have sheltered freedom seekers. To a less vivid degree, but also important, is the information conveyed on slavery and abolition at The Wayside on a tour of the house or an educational program.
