Welcome to the History Dump…

June 22, 2007

During the course of researching my thesis (2004-2006) I collected thousands of pages of documents- copies of originals held in the North Carolina State Archives collection.  My collection of copied documents includes newspaper articles, petitions, court records, letters, etc.  Some of these documents had not been seen for quite some time before I opened the dusty old folders that served as their well organized abode.

I hope you enjoy these left-overs of my historical labors.  What is coming up this week?  Over the next few days I will publish a few posts about runaway slaves, the interstate slave trade, and concealed weapon laws in the early twentieth century.

I will also be posting copies of papers I am currently working on (for publication) as well as old graduate school papers.

So sit back, come prepared to think, and please share any comments, questions, or rants that these posts might inspire.

    I’m looking forward to this. My Knowledge of history is pathetic so it will be a good education for me! I will probably like it more than weight loss 🙂 as I probably need to do some weight gain right now 🙂 I like the color scheme too.
