1800s Time of Conflict 7th grade Research Project

They’re all over, proof that Western NY faced the nation’s conflict firsthand in the early 1800s.

Historical markers like the one below help teach those who weren’t alive to experience it that Buffalo once experienced the guns and onslaught of then-foreign enemies, the British soldiers.

ARA 7th graders’ task will be to find some of these markers throughout our communities and study the history behind and thus literally stand in a moment in history. Details to be distributed tomorrow.
