Explore the Freedom Trail in New York City on this two-hour walking tour. You’ll learn about how brave people created the networks and contacts in Brooklyn and Manhattan which formed the Underground Railroad. Your guide will take you to an archeological site and memorial built in memory of colonial America’s enslaved Africans. You’ll get to see some of the former stations on the Railroad, including people’s homes and churches that were used to hide escaping slaves. The tour will also describe the riots, revolts, and dramatic escapes that occurred and you’ll hear exciting tales of the courage and triumph of real New Yorkers who risked their lives and property to help people escape from the chains of slavery.
