Event Description

KENOSHA, WI – Step back in time and hear the riveting story of a young woman who escaped slavery during a free live theatre program at 1 p.m. Saturday, September 15 at the Civil War Museum.

In 1842, sixteen year old Caroline Quarlls, a light skinned slave from St. Louis, escaped to Canada. “Caroline Quarlls: My Independence Day” is a live first-person theatrical performance based on the letters from Quarlls to Mr. Lyman Goodnow who escorted her from Wisconsin to Canada. Enjoy the professional performance, ask “Caroline Quarlls” questions of her experiences and have your photo taken with her.

After the performance, visit the museum's main exhibit, “The Fiery Trial.” Free admission to the exhibit will be given to a limited number of performance attendees.
