Hiking

Rackfliff Plantation House

My last hike of the day was back on the mainland starting behind the Assateague Island National Shortline visitors center; Rackcliff Plantation House. I enjoyed the trail itself, but is strange to see signs so casually grouping paid workers and slaves together in descriptions. It was history and needs to be taught, though seems appropriate to not conflate paid laborers with slaves – a good topic to ponder while walking the grounds.
