In 1991, while preparing for the construction of a new federal office, crews working in New York City made a startling discovery: a skeleton. Further excavation exposed the bones of more than 400 men, women, and children. Readers of this informative book will explore this area of New York that had been a burial ground set aside for both free and enslaved Africans during the 1600s and 1700s. Engaging text, sidebars, fact boxes, and a timeline reveal much about what life was like in colonial New York for Africans.
