Slavery and the Underground Railroad

Button Farm Living History Center is a work-in-progress dedicated to depicting 19th-century slave plantation life. Through their programs and activities, they strive to give visitors the experience of working as a slave and also experiencing the perils of escaping to freedom on the Underground Railroad. American History TV traveled thirty miles northwest of the nation’s Capitol to visit the farm and learn about the non-profit Menare Foundation.

Our tour guide is historian Anthony Cohen, founder of the Menare Foundation

On November 11, 2011, Anthony Cohen presented a tour of Button Farm filmed by American History TV.
