Colonial Williamsburg Presents: When Freedom Came
Bring your students to Colonial Williamsburg without ever leaving the classroom! The Colonial Williamsburg Electronic Field Trips allow students to travel through time to experience life in colonial America.
Everyone knows Abraham Lincoln freed all the slaves . . . or did he? Freedom came to enslaved people over the course of many months and years — and it arrived in different ways in different places.
In the fifth installment in this seven-part series, entitled When Freedom Came, discover how enslaved Americans made everyday choices during the Civil War that helped bring about their freedom.
When Freedom Came premieres on Thursday, February 16, at 1:00 p.m. on WCVE PBS / WHTJ PBS.
