... seeing a lot of really cool old buildings as we'll as the harbor and the waterfront park. That night, while a few of the people went to the rehearsal dinner for Allison's sister's wedding, Ashtin and I took the opportunity to go to dinner by ourselves. We went to a restaurant outside of town called the Fat Hen. It was an old house converted to restaurant. Really really good food.

When they were freed it was hard for them to start their new lives as most of the slaves didn't know where they were born or when or even who their parents were.
