You will produce a poster featuring one of these important people from the 1860s.  It should be composed of a recognisable picture of the person (such as a copy of a photograph, painting, woodcut, et cetera, or an original piece of artwork if it depicts the person accurately), the person’s name (in most cases the last name is fine), and some other element for variety (flags, maps, related pictures, and additional images of the subject would all work).  With the poster please turn in a brief (1-2 sentences are fine) explanation for the extra images you chose.  The poster is to be relatively small, no smaller than 8” by 10” and no larger than 16” by 20.”

Alternately, you may bake hardtack for the class.
