Guest Speaker Series – Featuring: Philadelphia author Jim Remsen
Topic: Fugitive-slave settlement in Waverly
A special history talk about the fugitive-slave settlement in Waverly, and its record of valor during the Civil War, will be held Sunday, Sept. 21, at the Waverly Community House. Philadelphia author Jim Remsen, a Waverly native, will reveal the fresh findings of his research into the thirteen black men who volunteered for the Union Army and returned south into harm’s way. He also will describe the racial attitudes of the period and tell about the local abolitionists who helped Waverly’s black residents – including the disabled veterans and their widows -- for decades.

The multimedia presentation is cosponsored by the Community House and the Lackawanna Historical Society. It begins at 2 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
