Johnson Hall – Lecture – “Slavery in the Mohawk Valley”
August 24, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Usually considered a “Southern” issue, slavery played a surprisingly large role in colonial and revolutionary era New York. Travis Bowman, Curator with the New York State Bureau of Historic Sites, will examine how slavery evolved in New York under the Dutch, British, and American systems of government and how the institution was utilized at a local and personal level in the Mohawk Valley.
