Description

The events of the Civil War and the abolitionist movement in the 1860s brought tremendous transformations to the US. Lynn was home to many Union soldiers & abolitionists. These individuals were committed to abolishing the practice of slavery across the county. This self-guided tour passes many sites tied to these histories of Lynn. Over 150 years later, some of these places resemble how they appeared in the nineteenth century, while others are unrecognizable. The tour is roughly 7 miles. See links below for further details.
