Cemetery Tour: Courageous Crusaders: Women’s Rights, Freedom from Slavery, and Modernizing the Law

Cemetery-5On Saturday, June 6, 2015, at 4:00 p.m., volunteers from the Stockbridge Library’s Museum & Archives will present the first cemetery tour of the 2015 season, Courageous Crusaders: Women’s Rights, Freedom from Slavery, and Modernizing the Law.

Come explore the lives of remarkable Stockbridge people who changed history through the legal system. Learn about a slave who sued for her freedom, trailblazing lawyers who fought unfair labor laws, and a judge who reformed our entire legal system. Discover how we all benefit today from the work of these courageous crusaders.

The tour gathers at the cemetery gate on Main Street (Route 102), Stockbridge. Parking is available at the old Town Hall, across from the gate. A $5.00 donation is requested.
