Minuteman Celebrates Black History Month 
Thomas Day, Carpentry: Thomas Day was an entrepreneur and master cabinetmaker whose furniture and architectural woodwork is considered to be among the finest of 19th century craftsmanship. In the decades before the U.S. Civil War, Day, a free Black man, operated a successful cabinet shop in North Carolina where he sold fine furniture and interior woodwork to wealthy buyers. Unbeknownst to most of his customers, Day was connected with northern abolitionists and sent his daughters to an abolitionist school in Massachusetts. In recent years, Thomas Day’s furniture has been exhibited at the North Carolina Museum of History and the Smithsonian American Art Museum (Smithsonian American Art Museum).
