The Contraband Decision
May 25, 2013 — 10 am at the Fort Monroe Theatre
Join us for commemorative events recognizing the 152nd Anniversary of the "Contraband Decision."
Three enslaved men, known to us today as Frank Baker, James Townsend, and Shepherd Mallory, escaped and sought freedom with the Union Army at Fort Monroe during the U.S. Civil War. This act of bravery and Major General Benjamin Butler's "Contraband Decision" led to thousands more seeking refuge here, earning the fort the name "Freedom's Fortress." Explore this rich history and learn how these events contributed to the history of the United States and the Emancipation Proclamation.
Commemorative events begin at 10am at the Fort Monroe Theatre. Hourly living history tours start at Cannon Park from 1pm - 4pm.
Please visit www.nps.gov/fomrfor a full list of commemorative events.
Sponsored by: The National Park Service, The Contraband Historical Society, Hampton Parks and Recreation, and the Fort Monroe Authority. Admission is free.
