Homeschool Day- Seizing Freedom

Explore stories of people -free and enslaved- who lived before, through, or after the Civil War. How did enslaved African Americans remain hopeful in dark times? Was the freedom won at the end of the War really free? Programs include special tours of the White House and Brown’s Island. Tour space is limited and registration is encouraged.

Overheard: Conversations About Hope, Yearning, and Loss

Within the walls of every home are the voices and conversations of residents past and present, public and private.

During special interactive evening tours of the White House of the Confederacy you’ll meet and hear conversations among free and enslaved people from the Civil War era. Uncover their diverse relationships, points of view, values and motivations. Through their voices, you’ll discover that life in the house is often a smaller reflection of life outside its walls.

Two tours are offered each evening. Space is limited, and reservations are encouraged.
