Exhibit on 'slave village' opens at Monocacy

February 02, 2010

The National Park Service is marking Black History Month with an exhibit on a 200-year-old "slave village" that archaeologists found at the Monocacy National Battlefield near Frederick. The temporary exhibit opened Monday at the park visitor center and will be up through the end of the month. Spokeswoman Tracy Shives says the exhibit uses written materials and artifacts such as buttons and pottery pieces to explain how the community of up to 90 slaves was uncovered and how they lived.
