Located in Madison County near Richmond, White Hall was home to emancipationist Cassius Marcellus Clay (1810-1903), a naturalist, newspaper publisher, and well-known orator who served as U.S. minister to Russia from 1861-1869. Clay is credited with urging President Lincoln to sign the Emancipation Proclamation freeing American slaves. As students move through White Hall’s stately rooms, they learn about Clay’s long and varied career and his involvement in the Mexican-American and Civil Wars. They’ll also learn about his daughter, Laura Clay, who was active in the women’s rights movement of the 19th and early 20th century. Produced 2000.
