Mr. Dumas’ history class went on a trip this week to the African American Civil War Museum. Students discussed Washington, D.C.’s role as a place for freemen and former slaves.

The museum provided additional information about the role of African Americans in the civil war including letters, artifacts, mementos, and¬†historical information from he time period.
