50 teachers, 9 states, 1 President’s Civil War Grandmother
This week the Truman Library is hosting their annual teacher conference with the theme of “Kansas, Missouri, and the Civil War, 1854-1865.” 50 teachers from 9 states are attending. One of today’s speakers will be talking about Truman and his grandparents experience in the Civil War. This photo is of President Truman’s grandmother, Mary Jane Holmes Truman.
Mary Jane Holmes Truman was the daughter of Captain Jesse Holmes and Nancy Tyler Holmes. The original 5 x 7 photo photo is undated.
You can follow the conference on the Discussion Board of the Library’s Facebook page.
