This morning, we learned that Tamar and her class had done a project creating 19th century- style newspapers. Each created one issue of a newspaper specific to a place and time. Tamar's was the Redfield Revolution. Redfield is a real town in New York. north of Syracuse, but the newspaper name is fictional. It is dated April 12, 1855 (exactly 6 years before the firing on Fort Sumpter). Tamar had to research and write five articles on issues important to that place and time, like slavery and the Underground Railroad .
