Sunday, June 12th, 2016

New York, especially Upstate, has to do a better job to promote the historical significance of Peterboro as an epicenter for Emancipation, Suffrage and the Abolitionist Movements. Alden ‘Max’ Smith (above) told some wonderful stories about the influence of Peterboro and Gerrit Smith as we visited the 24th Annual Civil War Weekend.

He also invited us back for the Peterboro Emancipation Day Celebration, which is scheduled for August 6-7, 2016.
