"fort monroe" Discussed on Following Harriet

"In a shorter way when people ask what caused the civil war. We say it's complicated comma slavery. You know it's a question Stephanie. Weenie GETS A lot. She's the director of education at the American Civil War Museum in Richmond. It's part of the historic tredegar ironworks complex which supplied about half of the artillery used by the confederate states army as well as the iron plating for the Virginia the first confederate ironclad warship. And we hear lots of misconceptions coming out about the cause of the war which ninety nine percent of those go back to the idea of reason slavery so if it was about state's rates was about states rights to own leave people. If it was about the idea of well slavery was dying out anyway. No actually growing and expanding it's our country would not exist without the institution of slavery by the time of the civil war. There's almost four million people in the south in slavery again historian Ed Ayers and you know. We know the story of uncle. Tom's cabin escaping across the Ohio River and so forth the great majority of and slay people would have been so far from any possibility of escape through walking or through any means. Frankly sometimes you teach young people and they said well. I wouldn't have stayed well. It would have been almost impossible to escaped from most of the south in the places that have the largest plantations are in the interior the black belt of Alabama Mississippi or they are secluded like the sugar plantations that we see in twelve years. A slave important thing to remember too is that slavery varied a great deal across the south and many of the young men who were sold out of Virginia or Maryland would have been shipped to Louisiana there. The sugar plantations prefer to hire over ninety percent. Men and the women that would buy would be just barely old enough to bear children and we'd be expected to bear children until they could no longer do so. The infant mortality rate there and in the South Carolina low country where they grew rice boggles our imagination but as the civil war dragged on and the union pushed deeper south. The cracks start to show. Just look at what happened at Fort Monroe Virginia in eighteen sixty one two hundred fifty years earlier. It was known as Point Comfort. Remember that from the beginning of the episode the place where the first enslaved Africans to set foot in what would become the United States were traded for food and supplies. How fitting that. This place would be one of the first to offer. Enslaved people refuge during the civil war so this is the main the central entry point to the historical fortification at Fort Monroe. Maingate would have been staffed. It is actually likely the spot where bigger towns in eighteen sixty one three enslaved men Baker Townsend and Mallory showed up at the main gate of Fort Monroe it was the largest stone fort in the country and it was surrounded by what is essentially a moat. You'll dance of the colonial national historic park. Picks up the story from there. They were being used by the confederate army to construct dishes. And you know. Lightweight fortifications Adjacent to Fort Monroe. They made note. That Virginia seceded from the Union. And on that very night they decided to take that risk in seek their freedom and they came here to form row. It happened to be the Second day that General Butler was here and had taken command and he was confronted with this decision. He had to interestingly enough. He had contemplated in the past the ability to keep freedom seekers and had not found argument that he thought we'd be justified or sustained but upon learning the way that these enslaved men were being used he felt confident he could argue him being a lawyer that they were Weapon being used against the Union army and therefore could be retained as contraband of War. This led to thousands of freedom seekers arriving not only at Portman Road but at other union camps and forts throughout the country and guess who else spent some time at Fort Monroe our hero. Harriet Tubman. So we're standing here at Algernon Oak Astronaut oak is a witness tree In that is a tree that would have been here two as a witness or to observe And been part of that experience of the past so when you think in terms of the place where history happened. This tree is believed to be at least four hundred years old so the potential that it witnessed arrival of English settlers they rival of Africans as well as witnessing Harriet Tubman. Will we know that there is a memorandum from the War Department? That's dated April. Twenty second eighteen sixty five and that's authorizing for free government transport for Harriet. Tubman to come to former so we know that she's here in the spring of sixty five because she has the ability to get here at the cost of the United States government. That's Robin Reid. I'm the director of the case. May Museum here at Fort. Monroe the next thing we know about Harry Todd minutes that the surgeon general of the United States vk barn since communication to the chief medical officer here on the Virginia Department primarily to instruct him to appoint Harry is either a nurse or a matron here at Fort Monroe It is our understanding that she was anticipating serving as Grand Matron at the hospital and that is not the role that she ended up playing see cooked. She did laundry. How long does she stay? We don't know that way. We suspect a couple of months. Because there's no records after that. It's a complex and complicated shared history. Our United States of America. You could be forgiven if you didn't know that James Madison had slaves or Harriet. Tubman was a union soldier. That's because those kinds of details are often left out or lost as were taught a certain narrative about our country but visit places in Virginia. Like Monticello Montpellier and the American Civil War Museum and you'll see how that narrative has evolved to be much more inclusive and two more honestly reflect the reality of our history but when you think of it as the making of America and a shared narrative that we all were experiencing and our ancestors all had to make some really difficult choices. You really begin to understand how important that history is to us today. And that's where we go in our final episode of following. Harriet will pull Harriet Story. And the story of the African American experience in Nineteenth Century America right through to the present. We'll talk about why a movie like Harriet. And how it depicts. The way she lived her life is so important to us as Americans at this time. It's really easy to think about slavery as this monolithic that happened. Twelve million people two hundred years ago that we can kind of ood. That was bad. It happened it's over. I don't really have to process that too much right. Is this thing that happened. I can't really think about it too. Detailed how could you not want to examine the lives of enslaved people? When you're examining history. It doesn't make any sense to me. If you'd like to learn more about visiting places that tell the story of Harriet Tubman the underground railroad and the nineteenth century African American experience especially in the state of Virginia.

"What we call now fort Monroe, and while also known as slavery. Yes. No. Gayle king one might suggest that well there weren't it wasn't codified in law, and that they didn't get the same treatment as other indentured servants from other parts of the world who came to the United States. But it matters that there was. System of indentured servitude at a minimum. There are plenty of historians. Who would completely agree with north characterization? And there were so many headlines that I saw smashing him over the head for using the phrase indentured servitude in that context, and he's doing this because he part of his homework assignment after getting into major trouble related to all this black face nonsense was that he has to read TNC essentially, turn his administration into routes, a beacon of Justice and racial reconciliation where he's bringing people together. I mean there is there is this call by the way for him to step down. But I think the TNC assignment is punishment enough. This short book, but he seems to but he seems to be enjoying transformation. He's trying to do it. It's just it's one of those things. It's slightly annoying to me that the facts don't matter here and sixteen nineteen the Africans that were coming across that were brought here to this country. There were plenty of people who would regard them as indentured servants. It's certainly fair to refer to it as slavery later. But they're just preventative having a having a Gayle king when you said coming across, and you stopped and you said forced here because he didn't want to have your, okay?

It was the second day on the job for Major General Benjamin Butler. He was faced with a decision that at that point. Even president Lincoln had avoided making whether the north should stand for freedom for slaves. Butler interviews each each one of the men and has to decide what to do when a Representative for their owner, actually, a confederate appears here are the following day Butler tells the owner that since the enslaved men had been digging ditches for the confederacy therefore because they're being used against me in an active war.

Obama didn't visit then the fourth director of communications Phyllis Terrell hopes. He'll come this August when they opened a new visitor centre with a big exhibit about the Africans. Arrival Tyrrell's, a descendant of Virginian slaves. I didn't know about the arrival here at point comfort. I got the bias of the arrival at Jamestown bought into that line on a hill. Overlooking the sign proclaiming the first Africans. Arrival we come upon an elegant black rod. Arch with the name on it a name that takes me by surprise Jefferson. Davis memorial park. Yes. This was erected in the fifties. By the United daughters of the confederacy. We had the internal conversations about. Okay. What do we do with this? This artwork here. They've kept it up because it's history to Terrell says and people can learn from it. There are plans in the works for a memorial for the first Africans, but there's much less to learn about them from written history their lives effective. Millions of people who exist today, but back then they didn't warrant a mention for the world Rupa Shenoy fort Monroe. The missing voices. Tomorrow Rupe looks at how people today are dealing with the problematic gaps in our history, we very rarely find any kind of artifacts, usual item related to black people. What we have our documents that were written by white people generally people in power, we've got more about our reporting on the four hundred anniversary of slavery in the US at the world dot ORG. The New York museum saying he got the Guggenheim the met MoMA the Whitney the Noguchi, museum and queens. And now the KGB spy museum. Yup. An entire museum devoted to the infamous secret service of the Soviet Union Alina Simone just went there. And I not sure you have any reason to Alina, but we're you undercover disguise just to even get in the mood. Now, I was in street clothes, but I have to say there was definitely a Cozma irony in seeing the KGB spy. Time music next to like across joint block from the apple store in Chelsea. So who are the people behind this KGB spy museum? The carriers are a father and daughter duo, just the Julius and OG Nate or by T. Tay what you can see our offensive in real. We just have they actually run an atomic KGB bunker museum in Lithuania. So this is a larger and more robust offshoot of their first museum and a lot of the artifacts. They tell me that they amassed were in deep storage and are actually available for the first time. Here did you say KGB, atomic bunker museum that one is in Lithuania five years ago? They opened museum inside of a former atomic bunker in conus Lithuania. So what is the connection Julius? This curator has and his daughter to the KGB. I mean, why such a desire to open a museum around the secret service? Julius doesn't. Scribe himself or his family is you know, people who actually suffered at the hands of the KGB shoot Rocha your most he came into this. As a collector, he was a really avid collector of World War Two paraphernalia, especially gas masks. And it was while he was collecting this stuff that he stumbled upon his I spy artifact, which was a telephone bugging device used by Hitler's officers to spy on his own troops. And they're only one or two in existence and those pre EBay days, he realized that this was the holy grail of military collecting this whole subterranean world of artifacts, though. So SO teric so camouflaged as to be almost undetectable that hardly anyone was collecting them. So what kind of exhibits are there? What do you see as you walk through this museum? I was escorted through the museum by Julius and OG may who describes herself as a secret telephone communications. And cipher machines expert, well, both of them were were dressed in authentic, KGB, trenches and military coat. And here we have actually a Stalin slam the real selling slam..
