PRESENTING RACE AND SLAVERY
AT HISTORIC SITES

MANASSAS NATIONAL BATTLEFIELD PARK

"Presenting Race and Slavery at Historic Sites" is a cooperative research project between the National Park Service and the Center for the Study of Public Culture and Public History of The George Washington University. Researchers are analyzing the presentation of race and slavery at three major National Park Service historic sites: Arlington House (the Robert E. Lee Memorial in George Washington Memorial Parkway), the Manassas National Battlefield Park, and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Researchers are conducting surveys of visitors and front line staff to discuss their perceptions on how race and slavery are presented at these sites.

The report by an appointed graduate student who led the interviews at Manassas National Battlefield Park summarizes the methodology of the study and highlights the results of the surveys. Each report will be shared with interested NPS staff and others.
