Title: Scott Foresman Social Studies, The United States

In reference to written testimony provided by Eleanor Hutcheson:

We thank Mrs. Hutcheson for her testimony. However, the Scott Foreman editorial staff has checked the picture and statements in question about Crispus Attucks on pages 262 and 277 and wish to make no changes. The sources that indicate that the information is correct include the Encyclopaedia Britannica, Africans in America, The Biography Resource Center, and the Constitutional Rights Foundation. The picture of Crispus Attucks was purchased by Stock Montage from the Historical Picture Service and has been used as his image frequently.
