RE: Clarence Beebe
Thanks so much for the information about Clarence Beebe's photo, Iola. I really appreciate it.

As for the company I work for (Schoolwide, Inc.), we do accept submissions for review and potential publication. The typical publication would be edited with the author's input, have artwork added (photos or illustrations), and then be published as an eBook that's available to students and teachers online. You'll find information about submissions at this website:

If you have any questions, let me know. We welcome pretty much anything that's appropriate for kids in grades K-8, primarily.

RE: Ralph Bates
Not at all. Glad to be of assistance. Saw him in 'Absent Friends', a play by Alan Ayckbourn at The Grand Theatre in Leeds in 1988. Tragic loss

Elias Boudinot
Thank you so much for an accurate & sensitive portrayal. If I read one more time about how the Ridge's and Boudinot "caused" the Trail of Tears I was going to beat my head against the wall! (My daughter is a direct descentant of Andrew Ross , who probably was in on the Echota Treaty signing for what he could get? How can you ever really know?) People who haven't studied the history of the nation and then open books in the middle think they understand and assume blame and so much bias! Was Chief Ross really that perfect as a Chief? Tired of those three signer's being so reviled!
