Rappahannock Exodus: The 1862 Flight to Freedom and Beyond

Members of the 23rd USCT

Chief Historian, John Hennessy

At noon this Saturday at the John J. Wright Museum, John Hennessy will be presenting a program entitled “Rappahannock Exodus: The 1862 Flight to Freedom and Beyond.” The recreated 23rd USCT is sponsoring this event along with John J. Wright. After the talk is over, attendees will have the chance to explore the exhibit "Emancipating Their Homeland: Spotsylvania-born U. S. Colored Soldiers” with the members of the 23rd who will be there in uniform to assist and answer questions. This is a free program, so don’t miss your chance to come and learn about a topic that is already growing in popularity. Hope to see you there!
