Students explore the life of Offin Boardman, a wealthy Newburyport merchant and Revolutionary war privateer, as well as his family and others including servants, sailors, farm hands and friends, in order to create their own historic fiction. Students gather ideas, develop characters, and then place them in an appropriate authentic setting, including the Manor house, the 1775 barn, the farmhouse, and the beautiful landscapes at Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm.
