I am excited about being in this historic area as so many things occurred of historical significance. This is the are where the institution of slavery began to be dismantled literally by the slaves themselves. Being near the contraband camps is really exciting to me, as I realized as slaves walked off the plantations—they began the revolution of dismantling slavery themselves! I hope that many will come to appreciate the meaning of what happened and how, just like the revolutions that we are observing in the middle east and in Northern African—-the people made the revolution. I hope that more will come to see and to understand this.
