New traveling trunk on World War II history
The Center for Public History announces a new traveling trunk to teach about World War II to 5th graders. Prepared by Veterans History project coordinator Amanda Corman, the trunk features artifacts and teaching materials that mesh with the new Georgia Performance Standards for teaching 5th grade social studies. If you are interested in borrowing this trunk for your school, please contact Amanda Corman, Veterans History project coordinator, at the Center.
CD Release concert
The Center sponsored a public concert and CD release party for Set Your Fields on Fire 1 in February 2006 at the Townsend Center for the Performing Arts. Six musical groups featured on the CD performed to a near full house. The CD is now available for sale at Horton's Books and Burson's Feed and Seed, both on Adamson Square in Carrollton, and through the Center for Public History.
"It was passed down from generation to generation"
The Center's exhibit on regional baking traditions continues to travel around the West Georgia region, most recently at New Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Powder Springs in July and August. To schedule the exhibit at your site, please contact Sandy Pollard at the Center at 678-839-6141.
