As some of my readers know, last year I took three students to the tiny town of Greenwich, New Jersey to work on a project on the Greenwich Tea Burning. We worked in the archives of the Cumberland County Historical Society‘s Lummis Library and thought together about the relationship between history and memory in a local community. I think it was a great experience in doing local history and connecting it to larger issues in the American past.
If funding comes through, and the good folks in Greenwich will have us, we hope to return again in 2011.
