TENT SPONSORED EVENT ON CIVIL WAR HISTORY
Educational talk sponsored by the Mary Gahan Tent. In the years before the Civil War, Solomon Northup, a free black man from upstate New York, is kidnapped and sold into slavery in the South. Subjected to the cruelty of one malevolent owner, he also finds unexpected kindness from another, as he struggles continually to survive and maintain some of his dignity. Then in the 12th year of the disheartening ordeal, a chance meeting with an abolitionist from Canada changes Solomon's life forever.
Yearly we get together to start planning our events. The most meaningful being our Illumination and Remembrance Ceremony. It starts Friday at 8:00 p.m. on Memorial Day Weekend. Our efforts are supported by the Waterloo Celebrate Commemorate Committee and the Village of Waterloo.
