Embattled Freedom with Jim Remsen
Sunday, March 18 at 3 p.m.
Presenter: Jim Remsen
Admission: Free
A special history talk about the fugitive-slave settlement in Waverly and its record of valor during the Civil War will be presented by author Jim Remsen. A journalist and Waverly native, Jim Remsen, will discuss research findings in his new book, Embattled Freedom, about the thirteen black men from his hometown who volunteered for the Union Army and returned south into harm's way. He also will describe the northern racial attitudes of the period and tell about the local abolitionists who helped Waverly's black residents in various ways for decades. This multimedia presentation will be followed by a book signing.
