    • Thanks for stopping by. Digging History is being converted to a digital download format. Various articles will be available for a nominal cost, as well as a monthly digital magazine. Just follow the link to purchase the article for $1.49. It has actually been updated from the previous version with footnotes and source. Much easier to write your paper I’d say!

  9. I see two pictures of Sarah when I Google her picture. Which one is the authentic Sarah. One looks like a stern school teacher which they placed next to the desk drawing. The other is a brown tone woman standing with her arm leaning on a piece of furniture. Please be so kind to confirm which one is Sarah, I need it for a historical project. thanks

    • I don’t think I’ve ever seen either of those pictures. The article here has been taken down and is now sold as an individual article at the Digging History Magazine Site ($1.99). The article has a picture I found and article has sources. Here’s the link if you’re interested in purchasing: https://www.digginghistorymag.com/2018/01/25/sarah-e-goode-article-only/
