Roads to Freedom is a summer-long physical activity initiative promoted by the Roads to Freedom committee. Roads to Freedom encourages children and parents to get outdoors and be physically active by engaging in an adaptation of letterboxing, a hobby in which participants must follow written clues to locate hidden items. Through the Roads to Freedom program, fifteen (15) artifacts – wooden posts with an etched Plexiglass plate attached to them – will be hidden in various locations in Adams County. Participants use a crayon or pencil to “rub” the picture on the Plexiglass plate onto the center, tear-out pages in their “Civil War Journal” (program guide).
Roads to Freedom booklets are available for pickup at all public libraries in Adams County.
