Over the next few weeks, we will be using Mondays to share stories from the Pottsville Freedmen’s Relief Association school in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
On March 23, 1867 edition of the Miners’ Journal updated their readers about the travels and efforts of teachers Fannie Couch and Hannah Streeper.
On the 24th day of February Misses Couch and Streeper left Pottsville for the scene of their labors in the South. After a few days’ travel they arrived at Murfreesboro, Tenn., where they are now pleasantly teaching freedmen. We expect in our next issue to be able to lay before our readers a full account of their school.
