Did You Know?
The Jesup Agricultural Wagon was designed as a school on wheels. It traveled to the poorest farmers in the South who could not attend Carver's lectures on agriculture. The wagon would carry seeds for planting, jars for preserving foods, bulletins written by Carver, and many other useful items.
