We have formed a 501.c.3. nonprofit corporation. Our goal is to provide an annual academic scholarship to a local student who has demonstrated a sincere interest in the history of our community.
We aim to enhance the educational opportunities for future generations to appreciate the rich history of the Civil War era and the abolitionist movement.
