Your Day in Court
This program will be a recreation of a trial that actually took place at Fort Scott in early 1858 regarding a land squabble. Disputes over land were common especially between pro and antislavery settlers. In this program, students take the roles of judge, attorneys, witnesses, and jurors as they try the case of Southwood vs. Stone.
