Research tips

Don't forget to check for national and/or regional context for your topic - below are some ideas and hints:

  • Native Americans - treatment and removal in Missouri, especially regions like this that border Kansas
  • Slavery - treatment and life before Civil War in border state of Missouri - what can you find for other counties like Buchanan (where St. Joseph is) - life after the war - check the WPA slave narratives (1 from Nodaway County, 1 from Andrew County where Savannah is - could look at others from Missouri or surrounding areas)
  • Raymond Gunn - look at history of lynching in the US (nationally, regionally)
