    Sully: The Life & Times of Sully
    (2016) Ferrell, Linden
    Sully Plantation is a little historic site that is located very close to the Washington D.C. area. Situated right in Chantilly and next to the Dulles Airport, this site is a perfect place to visit. There are nice, light and easy hiking trails that offer a great view of the plantation. Even though it is a lesser known site, it is important nonetheless! This site is intriguing because of its rich history about not only the families that lived there, but the slaves that worked on the property. The property has undergone many changes as its purpose differed for every owner. However, upon entering this site, the focus will be on the Richard Bland Lee Period (1787-1811) and comparing the lives of both slaves and owners.

    Mount Vernon Digital History: An Investigation into Slave Burial Archaeology
    (2016) Alexander, Ryan
    This site seeks to explore the ongoing archaeological excavation that is taking place at George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate. The intention of this site is to explore how archaeological techniques and investigations can help to unveil the roles and identities of enslaved individuals at Mount Vernon Estate. There will also be an investigation into the history of Mount Vernon Estate and how enslaved individuals were involved in George and Martha Washington’s lives. Finally, the maps section of this project shows comparisons between the findings at the Mount Vernon excavation against a burial site survey at George Mason’s Gunston Hall, exposing the benefits and limitations of archaeological interpretations.

    Project Plank Road
    (2016) Bodge, Bridget
    Project Plank Road gets its title from the name of the road that runs through Chancellorsville Battlefield, Plank Rd. Although the Battle of Chancellorsville is the bloodiest battlefield in the state of Virginia, and one of the most important battles of the American Civil War, the Battle of Manassas is much more well known, even by Virginia natives. Chancellorsville was not only the deadliest Virginia battle, but also a perfect example of the full might and threat of the Confederate Army, and resulted in the mortal wounding of one of the South’s greatest military leaders, “Stonewall” Jackson.
