On Dec 20, the 4th graders went to Philipsburg Manor. It is in Sleepy Hollow. There they learned about the slaves owned by Fredrick Philipse. The slaves worked very hard. They did things like smashing butter which could take one hour and you don’t even get that much! But, on the other side, Fredrick Philipse had a neat room with a nice bed and other fancy stuff, unlike the slaves. This took place from 1693 until 1779. The 4th graders saw all the things the slaves did and also saw Fredrick’s neat room. I hope the 4th graders loved their trip!
