Event description

Description

Immerse yourself in the history of Brooklyn’s famous Plymouth Church during the Civil War era. Historian and author Frank Decker will speak on the Ministry of Freedom that cemented the church’s role as a leader in the Abolitionist Movement and provide a tour of its historic buildings and sanctuary. Gain insights on prominent pastor Henry Ward Beecher and his newsworthy “slave auctions,” the church’s tenure as Brooklyn’s Grand Central Depot of the Underground Railroad and other fascinating anecdotes such as Abraham Lincoln’s visit prior to announcing his candidacy for president in 1860. Brooklyn Connections will share complementary primary source material from our archive to inform curricular tie-ins and lesson ideas for bringing Plymouth Church’s history during the Civil War era back to your classroom. This workshop includes a walking tour and takes place rain or shine at Plymouth Church, 75 Hicks Street, Garden Entrance, Brooklyn, NY 11201.
