Waynflete juniors visit Bowdoin to to examine documents from the Reconstruction Era

Waynflete juniors recently spent the morning with Bowdoin librarian Barbara Levergood, who facilitated an activity for them to examine original documents from the Reconstruction Era. These primary sources were from the 1871–72 Congressional Hearings on the investigation into the Ku Klux Klan and its treatment of Black Americans and white sympathizers after the Civil War. Students were able to read and analyze testimonies from both perpetrators and victims.
