Read Barbara's Op Ed Ghosts of the Civil War: Boston's Role in the Abolitionist Movement, published in The Boston Globe on November 27, 2011.

Excitement and interest in the 150th anniversary of the Civil War is sweeping the country. Learn about Boston's central role in the war that transformed the nation. Boston was the Hub of Abolitionism, as anti-slavery Bostonians, inspired by the legacy of liberty of the American Revolution, were determined to honor and extend that legacy to include freedom for slaves. When war came, Bostonians played a leading role in the Union war effort, and the first black regiment recruited in the North was formed in Boston.

The Freedom Trail Foundation® has published a full color, 64 page guidebook packed with contemporary and historical pictures and filled with thrilling stories about Boston's central role in the greatest conflict in American history.
