Discovering Michigan's history through letters
When it comes to connecting with those who have gone before us -- learning from them, discovering the differences and the similarities between us and great-great-grandma's generation -- you just can't beat a letter.
The words and thoughts that someone puts down on paper can speak clearly through the years and the centuries. And they're worth heeding.
That's the idea behind Michigan In Letters, an online collection. One of the contributors to Michigan In Letters is John Fierst with the Clarke Historical Library at Central Michigan University.
Fierst joined us today to discuss the collection.
