Preserve America

In May of this year, we received notification of award, Preserve America granting Charles County $60,000 to research and interpret Port Tobacco's Civil War era, focusing on the Lincoln conspiracy. I have now received the official notice to proceed from the county. We have already begun the archival research component and, after consultation with the Maryland Historical Trust, we will begin fieldwork after the first of the new year.

As always, we welcome participation. Refer to this blog for updates on what and when, and write or call me with specific questions. We will need help with all aspects of the work: archival, fieldwork, laboratory work, and all of the myriad activities that each aspect entails.
