I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be engaged in some archival work this summer, thanks to the generosity of a couple of funding sources. The David Library of the American Revolution has awarded me a residential fellowship, so I’ll be headed up to Pennsylvania soon to pore over their incredible microfilm collection. (Hope I can muster the discipline to get my research done while being in striking distance of so many Rev War sites.)
I was also fortunate to receive an Archie K. Davis Fellowship from the North Caroliniana Society, which will give me an opportunity to examine Revolutionary War records in the Old North State. I’m very grateful to both the DLAR and the NCS for these research funds; I wouldn’t be able to access materials critical to my dissertation without this support.
Oh, and if you’d like to read a short description of my project and look over my CV, you can now do so at the UT Department of History’s website.
