I am currently providing instruction for the GED LITERACY PROGRAM with a strong emphasis on American History. I serve as teacher/guidance counselor combination of 35 years and loved it immensly. I am currently writing a book dedicated to women who fought in the Revolutionary War and Civil War in the United States of America.I've noticed how their contributions as fighting soldiers was excluded from public school children's history books. I wish to rectify this ! I have been studying a very unfamiliar historical figure to children's texts known as Father of the Underground Railroad, William Still. Reading and studying the narratives collected in his book has interested me deeply.Along with these two major topics ,I've had a tremendous interest in the fifty-fourth Regiment and Col. Shaw. I've been to Harvard University to read the original letters Col. Shaw wrote to his parents in regards to the men he commanded.
