This website was created in Fall 2006 as a graduate student class project at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Its purpose was to bring real-world meaning to history readings and lectures and to give students a chance to interpret southern history for the public. The project is a result of an asssignment by Dr. Peter Carmichael, Associate Professor of History, for HIS/IAR 627: Museum and Historic Site Interpretation. Because of the public value of the resources created by the students, the project website is now maintained by the Digital Projects office of the Univerisity Libraries. However, the website resources are entirely student-created, and the University Libraries makes no claim as to the accuracy of the views or information presented herein.
