Abolition & Escape: The Underground Railroad in Troy

  • Troy Farmer's Market Information Booth 433 River Street Troy, NY, 12180 United States (map)

At one time, Troy was a hotbed of abolitionist activity. This program provides background on Henry Highland Garnet and several other activists and educators who were integral advocates for the end of slavery and key persons in this region's African American community.  We’ll also discuss the famous rescue of Charles Nalle, an escaped slave who was captured by Federal Marshals and later freed by a group of citizens led by Harriet Tubman.
