The Dred Scott Footprints Tour
Saturday, November 1, 2014
The Young Friends of the Dred Scott 5th Annual Educational Field Trip presents the Dred Scott Footprints Tour on Saturday, November 1, 2014.
This fascinating bus tour of the St. Louis area will visit and discuss almost 40 locations and memorials that connect to the person and cause of Dred Scott’s case for freedom. Lesser known art and memorial honors that have recognized him throughout the nation that speak to the significance of Dred and the influence of his case will surprise and delight you. Many are unknown and right under our noses. Join us for this one-of-a-kind tour narrated by descendants of Dred Scott.
This is a tour of things old and new you won’t want to miss it! Cost of $75 per person includes: spacious multimedia coach bus with restroom, restaurant lunch, games, raffles, souvenirs, photo ops (definitely bring your camera!), and very special guests along the route. Space is limited.
The tour begins at 8:30am, returning by 3:30pm. Free parking provided by The Eugene Field House for those on this tour.
For more information you can visit the Dred Scott Heritage Foundation website at www.thedredscottfoundation.org or
