The Kentucky Historical Society presents: 

Saturday, Feb. 23 | 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Get your weekend off to a great start by fueling your body and your mind!

The Civil War was just days old when the first enslaved people began fleeing the plantations to seek refuge inside the lines of the Union army as it moved deep into the heart of the Confederacy. In the years that followed, hundreds of thousands more followed in a mass exodus from slavery that would destroy the system once and for all. Drawing on an extraordinary survey of slave refugee camps throughout the country, Embattled Freedom reveals as never before the everyday experiences of these refugees from slavery as they made their way through the vast landscape of army-supervised camps that emerged during the war. Dr. Amy Murrell Taylor is associate professor of history at the University of Kentucky and author of The Divided Family in Civil War America.
