Team Returns to Field December 3

We've had so much fun at Port Tobacco that the project team will return to the field on December 3, 2007 (Monday) and continue working in town until that Thursday. Sorry: we couldn't fit in a weekend. We hope to explore the northern part of the town, work underwritten in part by grants from Preservation Maryland and the Southern Maryland Heritage Area Consortium (many thanks to both).

If you would like to join us, please contact me or April.

This will be the end of fieldwork for the calendar year, and possibly for the winter. Over the winter we will begin assembling our archival database, mostly collecting data from the censuses and local newspapers. Several folks have expressed interest in this part of the project and we certainly will avail ourselves of your generosity.
