Section Information for Fall 2022
This course uses the broad topic of the life and times of George Washington (1732-1799) to introduce History majors to the methodology of researching, interpreting, and writing history. The final project will be a contribution to ARGO: American Revolutionary Geographies Online, a digital repository of maps from the revolutionary era (1750-1800), hosted at the Fred W. Smith Library for the Study of George Washington at Mount Vernon. Each student will research and write an essay about a certain feature of a map chosen from that collection or the information it conveys. High-quality work will be published, after editing, as part of the ARGO project.
