is the Eagle Scout project done by Steffen Gates in 2001. Virtually everything
having to do with this project was conceptualized and and created
by and with the help of other boy scouts.
project for the Roger Brooke Taney home and museum would not have
been possible if not for all the help and support I received. First,
I would like to thank my parents for getting me into scouting to
begin with. Next, I would Like to thank Scoutmaster Ronn Layman
for pushing me in the right direction dispite my overly busy schedule.
Finally, I give thanks to Mr. Reevey, Mr. Hardy, and all the scouts
who volunteered their time to take pictures and write descriptions
for the all of the many artifacts in the museum. I want to give
special thanks to Mr. H Thomas Summers, President of The FSK Memorial
Foundation Inc., and also to Alden Merchant, a friend and scout
from another troop, who went out of his way to help before, during
and after the scheduled project time.
