Web Site Features African American Heritage
The National Park Service’s Archeology and Ethnography program is pleased to announce the launch of a new web feature, The Robinson House: A Portrait of African American Heritage. Within Manassas National Battlefield Park, the Robinson house survived in spite of the first and second battles of Manassas. As African Americans, the Robinson family found themselves embroiled in the struggles of the nation before and after that war. Visit www.cr.nps.gov/aad/robinson/index.htm to explore how archeological research, architectural studies, and oral history reveal new insights into the changing lifeways of free African Americans.
