Hello World.

Hello World.

My name is Victoria. I am a student of the University of Virginia’s College at Wise and one of the newest members of the Century America Project.

The Century America Project is a COPLAC sponsored course where students such as myself research the local history of their college town during World War One. As we research, we are pushing ourselves to learn the valuable skills of archival research, website design, blogging and networking. Our final goal is to be able to share history in a new and exciting way to as many people as possible.

In the upcoming weeks, I will be sharing posts about what I find in the archives of surrounding areas, what pictures, newspapers and other resources helped me along the way and the horribleness of paper cuts. (Because I am never able to avoid paper cuts and I mean never).

So came explore with me. It will be loads of fun.

And you should be able to avoid deadly wounds by paper. So it’s a double win for you.

Until next time,

Hello, my name is Victoria Carter. I am currently a Junior attending the University of Virginia's College at Wise as I work to obtain a Bachelor's Degree in History with minors in Business and Military Science. The intent of this blog is to profile the work I will be doing as I research and collect artifacts about what my great community did during the Great War and its direct aftermath.

One thought on “Hello World.”

  1. I love your blog name, Victoria! I’m certainly looking forward to following along. It’ll be fun to see what everyone else discovers as we conduct our own research.
