In honor of Juneteenth, Dr. Emilie Amt will be our special guest speaker on the social history of the African American experience in Washington and Frederick Counties in the era of slavery. Her extensive research using primary reference materials and interviews of extended families in the region are a highlight to her presentations. Dr. Amt is the author of “Black Antietam: African American Experiences of the Civil War in Sharpsburg.” Her book will be available for purchase and signing after the program.
Admission to the event is free (and a donation to the Monocacy National Battlefield Foundation is appreciated). A regular admission fee is required to visit the Museum.
