On Sunday, August 17th at 8:00 a.m. Harpers Ferry National Historical Park invites the public to retrace the 1906 footsteps of the men and women of the Niagara Movement during a commemorative ranger guided walk to the 1906 site of the John Brown Fort. The ceremony will include music, historic readings, and a memorial roll call of the members of the Niagara Movement.

At 10:00 a.m., following the pilgrimage, a non-denominational memorial service will be held at the Curtis Freewill Baptist Church in Harpers Ferry. 

Those wishing to participate should drive directly to the Murphy Farm and then to the church.
