WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) — Colonial Williamsburg’s electronic field trip series continues with a new program examining slavery and freedom.

The historic area says the program, called “When Freedom Came,” explores how freedom came to enslaved people over the course of many months in many ways and in different places. It further examines how enslaved Americans made everyday choices during the Civil War that helped bring about their freedom.

The new program premieres Thursday.

The distance learning programs are targeted to grades 4-8 and are supported with multi-disciplinary lesson plans, interactive student resources, program scripts and other materials to help teachers make history exciting and relevant for students.

The series is offered on public television and cable stations nationwide, and on the Internet.
