Tudor E. Grant: From Fugitive Slave to Oswego Businessman is a Social Studies lesson developed by the Oswego County Historical Society for 4th graders of the county. Using primary sources from the archives of the Richardson-Bates House Museum, the museum educator travels to local schools to teach the lesson. Students become acquainted with census records, directories, newspaper articles, anti-slavery petitions, and city maps. They gain an understanding of concepts such as slavery, abolition, UGRR and the federal law.
