#var:page_name# cover

This symposium will take a critical look at the true nature of the movement as it wove its way through old established New England towns. Additionally, the program will offer a hands-on workshop that will give the newly interested and the veteran researcher ideas on how to research their towns involvement in the UGRR and new paths to explore. Through sharing their own local story of a place or a particular person and by using a place-based approach centered on maps and mapping participants can piecing together history of a place, a region and ultimately their state.

Bring your questions and your problems, solutions and discoveries along with copies of historic maps if you have them, addresses, photographs, narrative accounts or just bring your interest, we will supply the rest.
