Our team of Junior Historians are hard at work drawing comics from local history topics & primary sources at Sandwich, NH this week.  Here are a couple of field trip sites we visited while researching our comics projects:

Our projects include comics drawn from the Weed Family Letters, Sandwich’s famous Niobe statue (and her fall from the Great Wall…), Native American activities in pre-Sandwich times, and the relationships of several “spinster” Sandwich women who worked in the mills at Lowell and maintained their financial & personal independence throughout their lives…

Stay tuned for comics at LIVE FREE AND DRAW!
