The Virginia Inside Passage, the corridor for freedom along the Eastern shore of Delmarva Penisula, saw countless enslaved Africans take this route to emancipate themselves from the shackles of slavery. 

This will be a lasting tribute to a fearless woman, freedom fighter, an abolitionist who never gave up and to all those known and unkown that took this waterway .
