    01.06 The Historian’s Clues—Text Version Introduction Slide One: Cold Case Introduction text appears overlapping a map of Colonial Williamsburg. “On February 28, 1755, Will Anthony reported the disappearance of gardening tools from his blacksmith shop. For more than 250 years, this crime has gone unpunished. Can you solve this cold case?” Slide Two: Case Summary On February 28, 1755, someone stole gardening tools from Will Anthony’s blacksmith shop. Word around town is that the prime suspects for this crime were James Ansley and Matthew Farmer. Mr. Ansley was another blacksmith in town who threatened to burn down Will Anthony’s shop to force him out of business. Matthew Farmer was Will Anthony’s apprentice at the blacksmith shop. You arrive on the scene. Slide Three: Inside the Blacksmith’s Shop (Interior image of the blacksmith's shop with a box in the corner) A box on the floor appears to contain evidence. Box contains diary, sales journal, interview with Matthew Farmer, photograph, and book titled Colonial Life. Diary You have found the blacksmith’s diary. Sources: Is this a primary or secondary source? A primary source is any source that was created at the time of the historical period that you are investigating. A primary source can be a document, a song, or even an artifact. A secondary source is created after the time period of the event or historical period. A secondary source can be a biography, movie, or textbook. Audience: Keep in mind each source’s intended audience and why a source was created. People typically write in a diary for their own reading and reflection and do not expect others to view this writing. How does this affect the evidence? Diary content:

    On February 28, 1755, Will Anthony Reported the disappearance of gardening tools from his blacksmith shop.” We have come to believe that the man responsible for this is Matthew Farmer. The most reliable source that we used was the blacksmith’s diary and this is a primary source. We believe that this is the most reliable source because the blacksmith himself was the one giving us information through the diary. I also believe that the blacksmith wrote this diary to keep for personal reason so this might also be more valuable. In this case the least reliable source was the photograph drawn by Elizabeth Burr and this is a secondary source. We believe that this is the least reliable source because it was dated 2010 and the crime was not properly depicted. We believe that this picture was meant to be released to the public. In General this picture was not accurate.
