The Road to Freedom Tour Guide highlights Virginia’s Civil War-era African American experience, encouraging visitors and Virginians alike to uncover these little-known stories of strife, growth, community, and more. It unleashes the power of both perspective and place and introduces historical figures that have been given little voice until now. This application allows you to interact with these stories in various ways. You can explore the Road to Freedom sites at large, and investigate the state’s history through tour collections for particular Virginia cities and themes, and read the illuminating narratives of key events and locations.
