Prerequisites: Open to first-year Honors students and permission of the instructor. This is a First-year Honors Inquiry course. Using archival sources and archaeological features, we will examine the 100+ individuals who lived at Sweet Briar between c. 1840-1900, including the antebellum, enslaved families and the postbellum servants and employees of Indiana Fletcher Williams. Research conducted by the students will be added to a Sweet Briar history database.
