The collections contain many famous documents including Paul Revere's own account of his famous ride. In 1854, the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society sponsored a Fourth of July rally in Framingham, Mass. Noted abolitionists, including William Lloyd Garrison, Sojourner Truth, and Henry David Thoreau, addressed the crowd. Garrison burned copies of the 1850 Fugitive Slave Law and the U.S. Constitution, which he called "a covenant with death and an agreement with hell."

    Black New England Heritage Trail
    New Hampshire - www.blackheritagetrailnh.org

    Telling New Hampshire’s forgotten stories, BHTNH covers the docks of Portsmouth, where merchants engaged in the trans-Atlantic slave trade unloaded their cargo, to the northern border with Canada where many escaping captives found their first moment of freedom and more. For more than 300 years, the lives of African people and their descendants have been a part of New Hampshire’s history. The Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire works to open hearts and minds for a deeper understanding of who we are as a collective and to recognize that we share a uniquely American heritage.
