In preparation for two upcoming presentations in Hagerstown, Maryland about the lost history of Frederick Douglass visiting the “Hub City” in April 1879 I recently had the pleasure of offering a preview talk at Ebenezer AME Church at 26 Bethel Street and a preview walking tour.
Special thanks to Mr. Ron Lytle of the African-American Historical Association of Western Maryland, Pastor Donald Marbury of Ebenezer AME, Commissioner Reggie Turner of the Maryland Commission on African-American History and Culture, Rachel Nichols of the Heart of the Civil War Heritage Area and the crew of the WDVM-TV for braving the elements. Additional thanks to Dan Spedden and his staff at the Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
