Summary

Over the last several years, Philipsburg Manor has been reinterpreted from the perspective of the enslaved Africans who made it work. In a second visit to Philipsburg, students can explore what we mean by "history" and how interpretations change over time. They will also seek answers to questions they have developed since the first visit and will take more pictures. It is helpful to do the reading photos lesson in this unit first.
