Philadelphia played a central and indelible part in the struggle to end the evil that was slavery, even as the city itself was sharply and fiercely divided on the issue. Many Philadelphians who made it their purpose to crusade against the institutionalized bondage of African-Americans did so against great opposition and often, great personal danger. Yet, they fought unflinchingly, eventually leading to the Emancipation Proclamation issued on January 1,1863. On this tour, hear the tales of their struggles and courage as we remember those who fought the good fight against that terrible scourge.
