Harrods Creek Slave Cemetery Walk and Dinner Talk

September 16 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Morris Mount Roberts Fellowship Recipient Robert Bell will present his research “The 206 African American Union Soldiers from Oldham County” followed by dinner and a walk to the Harrods Creek Slave Cemetery. Bell’s research details the names, regiment and company of these soldiers who participated as Union soldiers in the Civil War. Many of the soldiers earned their freedom from enslavement as they mustered in the Union army. The lecture and dinner will be followed by a walk to a designated slave cemetery with over 20 unmarked graves of enslaved people from Oldham County. All participants must pre-register by calling the Oldham County History Center. $35 per person, includes participation in activities, dinner and wine, beer and non-alcoholic drinks.
