Slavery and Dutch-Palatine Farmers: How did middle class farmers in Colonial New York interact with slavery? August 21 ~Yonkers, NY~

Usually considered a Southern issue, slavery played a surprisingly large role in colonial and revolutionary era New York.

Travis M. Bowman, the Senior Curator of the New York State Bureau of Historic Sites where he is responsible for the research, care, and exhibition of the collections at New York State’s historic sites and parks, will examine how slavery evolved in New York under the Dutch, British, and American systems of government and how the institution was utilized at a local and personal level among middle class farmers in the Hudson and Mohawk Valleys.
