Studying Local History in the Digital Age: The Story of Asaph Perry
Lee, John K.; Clarke, W. Guy
Social Education, v68 n3 p203 Apr 2004
In this article, the authors speak of an encounter they had in which they discovered some forgotten and unused historical resources hidden in a storage closet at the Cherokee County Georgia Historical Society. From these resources, they were able to weave an intriguing narrative encompassing people and events in history. They hope their story will encourage other teachers and students to explore primary sources from their community--in local archives, libraries, historical associations, and homes. (Contains 6 notes.)
