Summary
In 1991, preparation for the construction of a new federal office building led to a startling discovery: a skeleton. Further excavation exposed the bones of 420 men, women, and children. This area of New York had been a burial ground set aside for both free and enslaved Africans during the 1600s and 1700s. It s thought to be one of the most important archaeological discoveries of the 20th century. This noteworthy book which includes sidebars, fact boxes, a timeline, and maps fills in the gaps of history books, exposing much about what life was like in colonial New York for Africans. Fact Boxes, Full-Color Photographs, Further Information Section, Glossary, Graphic Organizers, Index, Sidebars, Websites
