Kevin Johnson as Jordan Freeman, an African-American servant

The South Windsor Historical Society will present Kevin Johnson as Jordan Freeman, an African-American servant, Oct. 9, 7 p.m., at Unity Church, 919 Ellington Rd., South Windsor.

 Jordan Freedman, a native of Old Lyme,  was an African American servant of John Ledyard and the body servant of Col. William Ledyard during the Revolutionary War.  Although he did not enlist himself, Freedman witnessed key events of the war for independence.  

Johnson’s presentation is based on his extensive research in the collections of the Connecticut State Library and the Museum of Connecticut History, where he is employed in the History and Genealogy Unit. In addition to portraying Jordan Freeman, he has been enacting the life of William Webb, a soldier in the Civil War, for more than 16 years and has given more than 500 presentations. His Webb program for the local historical society was one of the most popular of the 2009-10 season.

Admission for “Jordan Freedman: The Fight to Set People Free” is $5 ($3 for members). Refreshments will be served.

LOCATION: Unity Church, 919 Ellington Rd., South Windsor.
