Sue Gardner, an Albert Wisner librarian and local historian, was a guest speaker and presenter in Carrie-Lynn Taylor’s 7th grade English Language Arts (ELA) classes on Friday, May 5. She was joined by three other presenters and an observer.

Students had the opportunity to handle historic artifacts such as quill pens and a powder horn. They cast votes by dropping black or white marbles in a wooden ballot box. The Revolutionary War reenactors also held a Q and A session for the students.
