Schuman, Sandy Two Kinds of Liars History,
Life Skills- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
There are two kinds of liars: those who tell lies for fun, and those who tell lies for profit. Bill Greenfield – legendary hunter, trapper, fisherman, and Adirondack guide – was "the goldarndest, most unreasonable liar you ever saw." He told lies for fun. But George Hull, perpetrator of The Great American Hoax – the Cardiff Giant – told lies for profit. Two very different men, both Civil War veterans, provide tales both true and tall.

Carpenter, Margot The Underground Railroad in New York City--the Big Meaning Then, the Big Meaning to Us Now History,
Life Skills- Other
We describe places and courageous people of the Underground Railroad in New York City. In the early 1800s, a battle went on. It was of men and women, black and white, who wanted people to be free; and those intent on capturing them, to send them back to their “owners,” likely to be tortured, often to be killed, often sold to plantations far South. Our basis is the education Aesthetic Realism, founded by the great American poet and philosopher Eli Siegel. Aesthetic Realism explains this battle was between two ways of self, our own selves. It’s the battle of respect for the world and people, the desire to be fair to them, see meaning and value in people; and contempt for the world and people. Slavery, we’ll show, arises from contempt; the forces of the UGRR stood for respect. This was what the Civil War was about. Studying this we have the thrilling ability to learn about ourselves through history. Wrote Eli Siegel: "The fight, Shall I see the world and people with contempt or respect? is the fight within every individual right now; it is our constant, inward, personal civil war." Includes a re-enactment of an escape!
