Discovering Her Past
and the Links to the Present
"The disadvantage of men not knowing the past is that they do not know the present.History is the hill or high point of vantage, from which alone men see the town in which they live or an age in which they are living." G.K. Chesterton, All I Survey (1933)
The Ernestina is a sailing schooner built in 1894 in Essex, Massachusetts. She is considered a National Monument for her contributions to the history of America. Join us in a voyage to discover the many lives of the Ernestina and her contribution to our heritage.
You are on a journey to discover why people from Cape Verde imigrated to New Bedford and compare and contrast the two cultures from 1894 to the present.While on this journey, a log book must be maintained. Using this log book, please create a diorama/ collage or report which describes or draws from one period in the history of the Ernestina. An oral presentation of your project is the final part of this task.
