Myths, Legends and Stories of the Underground Railroad: The Story From Documents Versus What my Uncle Told Me About our Old House

  • Deyo Hall 6 Broadhead Avenue New Paltz, NY, 12561 United States (map)

Paul & Mary Liz Stewart from the Underground Railroad History Project will talk about the Underground Railroad in a way you've probably not heard it presented before, debunking popular myths and comparing them with what we know from documentation and archival research.

Paul & Mary Liz Stewart have been researching the Underground Railroad for the past 20 years. Their work has included publishing articles about the Underground Railroad, forming a non-profit organization around the Underground Railroad story, organizing scores of walking tours in multiple neighborhoods, organizing conferences on the Underground Railroad for 17 years, appearing on TV and radio, identifying a key historic site, getting that site on the National Register and raising over a million dollars for the site's restoration. They have won numerous awards for their work and don't plan to stop any time soon.
