The Beehive: the official blog of the Massachusetts Historical Society

This Week @ MHS

The MHS, including the library, will be closed on Monday, 15 February for the Presidents' Day holiday.

On Wednesday and Thursday, 17-18 February, MHS is partnering with the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court to present a two-day teacher workshop based on court cases and documents dealing with the end of slavery in both Massachusetts (after the Revolution) and in the country (before the Civil War). During their day at MHS (Thursday) participants will work with key documents from the collections that have been paired with Library of Congress documents to enhance an understanding of activities and events leading to the emancipation of slaves in this state and others. Teams will complete lesson plans around the documents to be shared by all the attendees. More info here.
