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,
