A 19th Century Military Landscape in Southern Maryland (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Aaron M. Levinthal.

The Maryland State Highway Administration's recent archaeological investigations in Charles County have helped to increase the understanding of a landscape that directly contributed to events that shaped a developing nation. The discovery and study of several War of 1812 and Civil War sites and loci, all within close proximity of one another, the port town of Benedict, and major waterborne and overland transportation corridors, has provided insights on choices made by 19th century military...


Advancing interpretation of USS Monitor through digital reconstruction (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Hannah E. Piner.

It can be difficult to interact with a large artifact actively undergoing conservation treatment and desalination. The artifact is almost constantly submerged in a treatment bath making it impossible or impractical for the archaeologist to study the particularities and imperfections of the object. This can postpone significant archaeological interpretation for years. By digitally reconstructing USS Monitor’s iconic gun turret, using photogrammetry and laser scanning, USS Monitor Center staff at...


Antebellum and Civil War Landscapes at Sherwood Forest Plantation (44ST615) (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Douglas W. Sanford. Lauren K. McMillan.

Sherwood Forest Plantation is located just outside Fredericksburg on the Northern Neck of Virginia. The late Antebellum plantation was home to not only the Fitzhugh family who owned the property, but also a large enslaved workforce; additionally, the manor house and the surrounding plantation core served as a hospital to Union troops in 1862-1863. Current research conducted by the University of Mary Washington, in conjunction with and support from Walton International Group, focuses on the...


Applications of LiDAR Imagery at the Beech Grove Confederate Camp, Battle of Mill Springs, Kentucky (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Brian Mabelitini. Carl R. Shields.

Before any archaeology was conducted at Beech Grove, aerial LiDAR data was acquired, to map known Confederate earthworks, identify earthworks that were not previously known, and otherwise guide the archaeological investigations.  The data sets consisted of 22 LiDAR point cloud LAS swath files which produced high accuracy 3D Digital Elevation Model (DEM) with 1.0 foot cell size. The LiDAR data helped identify at least three Civil War fortification features in the northern and eastern portions of...

The Artifact Collection from Modern Greece: Using 50 Years of Conservation to Answer New Questions (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Chelsea R. Freeland.

This paper analyzes the salvage of artifacts from Modern Greece, a Civil War blockade-runner off Wilmington, NC. The NC Underwater Archaeology Branch brought up over 10,000 artifacts in 1962-63. Parts of the collection underwent conservation, while others remained in storage at Fort Fisher. Recently, students from ECU completed a re-housing project to allow for identification of conservation targets and prevent degradation. This paper discusses the retrieval and housing as related to the...

Balancing Acts: Public Access and Archaeology in the Cape Fear Civil War Shipwreck District (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jeneva Wright.

During the American Civil War, Wilmington, North Carolina served as an important blockade-running center for the Confederacy. The Cape Fear region’s high traffic and dangerous shoals resulted in the largest concentration of Civil War shipwrecks in the world. The interpretation of these wrecks for public outreach constitutes a valuable opportunity to educate members of the public using a material culture assemblage connected with the historical framework of the Wilmington blockade. This paper...

Beyond Battlefields: Incorporating Social Contexts into Military Sites (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Hannah A. Vahle.

Although it has been more than a century since the US Civil War was fought, battles regarding interpretation and the public memory of the conflict continue to rage. Hundreds of sites along the eastern seaboard are consecrated to this period, with many preservationists and other historical organizations dedicated to sterile interpretations of these battlefields. These interpretations fail to capture social contexts of the site, as well as the development of the landscape since the Civil War. The...

A Brief History of Battle and Preservation of the Mill Springs Battlefield (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Joseph E. Brent.

The Battle of Mill Springs, Kentucky, was fought on January 19, 1862. Gen. Felix Zollicoffer’s Confederate army arrived in Mill Springs on the south bank of the Cumberland in November 1861, an action that would hasten the advent of the battle. Some 5,000 Confederate soldiers crossed the river and established a fortified encampment at Beech Grove, where they built winter quarters—log huts—behind a line of fortifications. The encampment left a remarkable archaeological footprint.   Since 1992, the...


Camp Lawton:  Life and Death of a Civil War Prison (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Sue Moore. J. Kevin Chapman. Amanda L. Morrow.

In 2010 Georgia Southern University began a long term project to investigate and interpret Camp Lawton Prison near Millen, Georgia.  This prison had a short lifespan, only six weeks to construct and six weeks of occupation and yet it has proven to have one of the most intact prisoner occupation areas of any Civil War prison in the United States.  Results of work so far have demonstrated the efficacy of metal detection use in the prisoner occupation area, developed a conservation strategy for...

Camp Stanton and the Archaeology of Racial Ideology at a Camp of Instruction for the U.S. Colored Troops in Benedict, Charles County, Maryland. (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Matthew Palus.

Camp Stanton was a major Civil War recruitment and training camp for the U.S. Colored Infantry, established in southern Maryland both to draw recruits from its plantations, and to pacify a region yet invested in slavery. More than a third of the nearly 9,000 African Americans recruited in Maryland during the Civil War were trained at Camp Stanton. Archaeological survey and testing resulted in the discovery of four features associated with shelters that housed recruits over the winter of...


The Church on the Hill: Inter-related Narratives and Conflicting Priorities for the Emory Church Property in Washington, D.C. (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Matthew Palus. Lyle Torp.

Fort Stevens was one of the only fortifications comprising the Civil War Defenses of Washington that saw combat, during Jubal Early’s raid on July 11-12, 1864. Prior to the Civil War, the land was sold by free African American woman Elizabeth Butler to the trustees of Emory Chapel in 1855 for construction of a church; when Fort Massachusetts was initially constructed in 1861, the church stood within it, but later was razed by the Union army when the fort was expanded and renamed Fort Stevens in...

DOCUMENT Citation Only Lyle Torp. Matthew Palus.

Fort Stevens is a well-known fort within the Civil War Defenses of Washington.

The context of the Emory Church is entwined with the...


A Civil War Battlefield: Conflict Archaeology at Natural Bridge, Florida (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Janene W Johnston.
