Tuesday, September 23rd and Wednesday, September 24th

1.) Class opener

The Kansas state historical society has a poster about Nicodemus.  It begin, “All colored people that want to go to Kansas, on September 5th, 1877, can do so for $5.00.”  That poster probably responsible for my familys involvement in this new community.  The town has few people in it today but someday, I hope. It may become a historic site.  (8 errors)
