May 3, 2012 at 6:00pm
United Presbyterian Church, 25 Church St., Cortland, NY

Staff member Alethea Connolly will share her research on Lemuel S. Pomeroy at the United Presbyterian Church monthy supper in Cortland. Pomeroy, was a member of the church from 1843 - 1852. His antislavery activities were greatly determined by his strong religious commitments. Her talk, titled, "The Slavery Question & the Presbyterian Church of Cortland Village: The Diary of Lemuel S. Pomeroy, a Church Member, 1843-1852", begins at 6:45pm. Intensive research reveals a unique untold story of a man, a congregation, and a nation, coming to grips with the complex limitations of "liberty and justice for all" two decades before the Civil War. Parking is located on Central Ave. by the church.
