Teacher's Report and Responsibilities
This February 1865 report of teachers H.M and H.S. Barstow includes numbers of students taught, the number of hours spent teaching, and the condition of the school. The Barstows were affiliated with the Northwestern Freedmen's Aid Commission (NFAC) and were required to abide by that organization's rules of conduct. Teachers, for example, were required to instruct their students for six hours a day and could be dismissed for filing false reports.
