Map Abolitionist History in New England

American Experience is mapping history. WGBH can help you participate.

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, WGBH and American Experience present The Abolitionists, a three-part story of five ordinary Americans who fought to end slavery in the US.

With the form below, WGBH can help you add New England's historic information to the map.

  • Is there a building on your street that was part of the Underground Railroad?
  • Do you have pictures or letters from the abolitionist movement? 

See more posts from around the US on the interactive map and see how American Experience, historical institutions and individuals have geo-tagged photos, videos, audio files, and documents that tell the story of the abolitionist movement. If you have something to share, add it to the map with the form below.

The Abolitionists broadcasts on Jan. 8, 15 and 22 at 9pm on WGBH 2
