Seward Museum staff will detail the Seward family’s involvement in the fight against slavery by highlighting relationships and political moves. The Sewards participated in controversial trials, pushed the bounds of New York and national slavery laws, and offered their house as a stop on the Underground Railroad. Frances Seward was also very good friends with Harriet Tubman and supported her in various ways.
