Will C. Wood High junior Carson Lamb, microphone in hand, pointed to what appeared to be bound copies of old newspapers lying on a white-topped portable table. Or maybe it was the 24-inch-long section of rusted steel track. Or maybe an old black-and-white map of a region in California.
They were among the artifacts, objects, photographs and ephemera he and his Advanced Placement U.S. History classmates gathered in about two hours Tuesday morning, to prepare for a brief, early afternoon presentation to some 40 other AP History students who assembled in the Hall of History at the Vallejo Naval & Historical Museum in Vallejo.
