Winton Triangle’s Civil War presentation
September 20, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Learn about role a rural community of color played during the Civil War. As part of Dr. C.R. Gibbs’ annual African American history lectures series at the Greenbelt MD Public Library, Marvin T. Jones presents with words and images the Winton Triangle’s successful efforts to keep American whole and to defeat slavery. Serving from Virginia to Texas, many were from families of soldiers. You will hear about their cause, challenges, escapes, victories and their lives – and what they created with their new freedoms after the war.
