In 1864, the state of Maryland declared slavery illegal, and any person who had been enslaved was granted freedom. At Hampton, where over 500 men, women, and children had been enslaved over a period of more than 100 years, many enslaved men, women, and children now had to decide what would happen next. Learn about stories of newly freed people who had labored in many different ways across Hampton Plantation. What choices were available to them? What would this new way of life look like? Using archival records, historians and curators continue to piece together these important stories.
