Join Toni Stevens-Oliver, Thornell Road elementary school teacher, and Vicki Masters Profitt, author, historian, and Director of the Fairport Historical Museum, as they share insights gleaned from primary source documents used to create an interactive, augmented reality picture book in tandem with a mobile app. The project details the experiences of Civil War soldiers buried in a local cemetery—researched and written by twenty fourth grade students. New York State Archivist Tom Ruller will describe Civil War-related materials available to everyone held at the Archives as well as those online.

Hosted by the Greece Historical Society.
