This Day in History: 1932-03-11
The two seventh grades at the Mahwah School went on a field trip to Washington’s Headquarters in Morristown. Mis soy and Miss Track chaperoned the group. After their return the pupils wrote compositions about what they had seen and learned. Particularly impressive for the students were the cannons in the yard, the kitchen with its flour barrel made out of an old tree trunk and the room where Lafayette had once slept. 1932 was celebrated throughout the country as the bicentennial of George, and Martha, Washington’s births.
