View from the Lighthouse: The Underground Railroad

2:30-3:30 p.m.: Choptank River Lighthouse, 1 High Street, Cambridge, MD; Visit the Choptank River Lighthouse and soak in commanding views of the Choptank River while hearing a free presentation on the Underground Railroad by Jim Duffy, the award-winning author of "Eastern Shore Road Trips" and the soon to be released "Tubman Travel Companion."
Duffy’s talk will encompass stories on a broad array of Underground Railroad topics linked to the area right around the Lighthouse, from Harriet Tubman’s family roots to the first escape she ever engineered, and much more.
The talk will be presented two times:
• Saturday, March 11 at 2:30pm
• Sunday, March 12 at 11am
The Lighthouse is ordinarily closed this time of year. This free presentation coincides with the community-wide celebration of the opening weekend of the new Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitors Center out near Blackwater. In addition to being open for the presentation, the Choptank River Lighthouse will be open and staffed by community volunteers from 11am to 5pm on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, March 10-12.
Admission is free throughout the weekend. There is no charge to hear the presentation. Donations are appreciated. The program is presented by the Cambridge Lighthouse Foundation.
Information: ChoptankLighthouse@gmail.com; 410.463.2635.
