    For school, i am doing a scrapbook on slavery and I am completely stumped on one part of it, and i was wondering if anyone with a mind more creative then me could help out?

    SO, the way that the project works is that you make a page on a topic relating to slavery only using primary resources and for each page you need a non-picture artifact relating to that event. There are 18 Topics.

    I was able to find an artifact for every topic EXCEPT for one. The project is nearing its deadline and i am starting to get panicky. My sister has done the project before but refuses to help me, answering even the simplest questions with "I don't know" and/or "maybe".

    Any way, i'm stumped on what i could use as an artifact for The Compromise of 1850. For the Missouri Compromise i used a feather pen so i cant use that for this one, but i cant think of anything else that would work [​IMG]

    I would appreciate any suggestions,

    Go with some deeper symbology. Maybe a mockup of a burning fuse running to a stick of dynamite.

    Print out a document from that Compromise and "age" the paper it's printed on by burning a few places around the edges, make some tiny tears and so forth to make it look like an old document. You may be able to find a printable background that already looks like that.

    maybe a cutout of the US map showing the disputed territories before and another cutout showing the disputed territories after the compromise. wikipedia has maps showing those transitions (before, after) here :

    I'm thinking kind of like a puzzle, maybe, with one piece the slave states, one piece the non-slave states, one piece the disputed territories.
