Event Details:
We plan to start at the Bandstand for a welcome, prayer, and music, then proceed to the 1619 historical marker, pass through the East Gate to gather near the Chapel of the Centurion, go through the Main Gate, and stop by the historical markers outside of the gate before dispersing.

Fort Monroe is a National Monument with a rich history. Fort Monroe was the site of both the first arrival of enslaved Africans to English North America, and a source of freedom during the Union occupation of the Civil War, when it became known as “Freedom’s Fort”. Today we acknowledge, celebrate, and honor the history of the place with a desire for racial justice and healing in our communities.
