Interpretative Labels
Very little survives from Vermont's earliest baseball teams except for their colorful names, such as the Essex Junction Edmonds, the Cambridge Lone Stars, the Jericho Muffs, and the Ridley Sunflowers. This baseball's just barely legible written label reads- "July 4, 1867/score 75-52/…. Champlains vs. …sp BBC." Vergennes fielded both the First Champlains and Second Champlains in the late 1860s. The other team name isn't clear enough to decipher. Does BBC indicate a Burlington Baseball Club? High scoring games like this one, often with over fifty runs, reflected earlier playing styles such as underhanded pitching and barehanded fielding. Connections by railroads and trolleys between towns and on Lake Champlain by ferries made it possible for the players and a growing number of spectators to enjoy what would become a favorite summer pastime, especially on the Fourth of July.

Context
This is part of the Rossi family collection. Based on the penned name inside the shorts, this uniform belonged to Claude Rossi, brother of Lawrence K. Rossi (1918-2015) Claude (1921-1945) was involved in many sports in high school and in intramural basketball -- which is likely what this uniform was from since the colors are not those of Spaulding High School.

Interpretative Labels
"Mammy" imagery, such as that seen in this doll, was a racial caricature of African American women. It depicts a smiling, desexualized black woman whose role is caring for the white children of her enslaver. The image was created as propaganda, to put forward the claim that African Americans were happy in slavery. Though the imagery began before the Civil War as a backlash to abolitionism, it endured long afterward as a justification for the economic oppression of black women, depicting them as only fit for domestic labor.

While this doll does not carry many of the more recognizable pieces of typical Mammy imagery, we know it was meant to represent that by her name: Dinah. During the nineteenth century, the name Dinah became a generic name used to indicate enslaved black women.

She is a dark-skinned woman with black hair in two braids. She is wearing a blue cloak with red-and-white trim. The reverse is printed to show a baby in a carrier wearing a war headband.

Molly, and her husband Joe, were St. Francis Abenaki people whose figures became central to Vermont culture after Joe's actions during the Revolutionary War were publicized and, later, romanticized. The pattern for these dolls was widely printed and sold throughout Vermont as tourist souvenirs. These particular dolls were constructed by Katherine Dopp from a kit she purchased at a gift store at Joe's Pond in the 1950s.
