Pieces of history : reconstructing the past of Bassett Hall, 1650-2013 by Melissa Lauren Jones( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis will examine the history of one of the historic homes in Colonial Williamsburg, Bassett Hall. It was home to Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller, Jr. while they funded the reconstruction of Williamsburg. The purpose of this thesis is to analyze the history of the house prior to the Rockefellers' involvement to illustrate a common dilemma faced by public historians and museum professionals: selecting which pieces of history to display to the public in the museum. Every artifact, or in this case a house, carries several different stories of its history. In the case of Bassett Hall, the museum planners chose to display the Rockefellers' history of the house and neglect the earlier residents and their stories. The thesis will also analyze the current museum at Bassett Hall and its failure to deliver the history of the house's earlier residents. The museum exhibits the Rockefellers' role in Williamsburg and the creation of Colonial Williamsburg. Though that story deserves to be delivered because Rockefeller is largely responsible for the success of Colonial Williamsburg, there should be more information about the other residents of the house. Some of the house's occupants have sparse information in the historical record, while other occupants appear more regularly. I will attempt to construct a thorough history of the house using the available records that will aid in delivering the history of the colonial city
Shedding light on dark truths : the interpretation of African American history at Tryon Palace in New Bern, NC by Stephanie Hardy( )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tryon Palace was home to the first royal governors of North Carolina. Today, the site is one of the most visited historic sites in the state. But what stories are visitors hearing? The historic homes and buildings at the site display local history but African Americans have only recently penetrated the interpretation. This thesis acknowledges the difficulties of displaying topics that are sensitive and emotional for many audiences while investigating the tremendous amount of African American history surrounding Tryon Palace. The town of New Bern, NC has always maintained a diverse population and African Americans have played a significant role in the town's history. Yet many are unfamiliar with this complex and unique story. This history both parallels and intersects with Tryon Palace in different eras. Using various primary and secondary sources, this thesis serves as a case study on how local African American history is interpreted at historic sites and museums. Much of the changes can be attributed to the African American Research Project, which was implemented in 1999. This endeavor created programs that brought African American history to the forefront of Tryon Palace's interpretation
North Carolina material culture : an analysis of the excavation conservation and display of the Confederate ironclad CSS Neuse by Jessica Caudill( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The CSS Neuse was a Confederate Ironclad stationed in Kinston, North Carolina. Today, it is one of a few surviving commissioned Confederate Ironclads, and is forgotten by many due to its lack of significant military history. While the ship does not have an extensive military background, its recent history is interesting and complex. This research is a multidisciplinary analysis of the ship's excavation, conservation, and display. The Neuse is a testament to the importance of cooperation between archaeologist, conservators, and museum professionals. During its original excavation, the ship sustained damage that affected the future conservation of the wooden hull. Also, since conservation was in its infancy during the time of the excavation, treatments were experimental. This research seeks to understand the full history and condition of the ship and associated artifacts in order to effectively preserve and display them for the future. Chemical analysis was employed to determine effectiveness of past treatments as well as levels of degradation, and recommendations were included regarding future conservation treatments. The Neuse is an important piece of North Carolina material culture, and an understanding of effective conservation is essential to the life and future display of the ship
"He has earned the right of citizenship" : the black soldiers of North Carolina in the Civil War ; a comment on historiography, treatment, and pensions by Peter W Coffman( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Frederick C. Douglass Papers, held at the Joyner Library of East Carolina University are an important source of information concerning the black soldiers of North Carolina. Many historians have written about the various regiments of the United States Colored Troops (USCT). But what is there to know about the experiences of black soldiers who enlisted, served, and sacrificed in North Carolina? What is there to know about the veterans who sought financial recompense for their sacrifices from the United States Military Pension System? What can we learn about the struggles of the black soldier's family or survivors who sought a financial relief for that soldier's death or post-war infirmities? This thesis acknowledges the honor, courage, and sacrifice of the black soldiers of the United States Colored Troops, specifically, the regiments of North Carolina. The pension agent Frederick C. Douglass assisted the veterans and their families in New Bern, NC, and the surrounding areas of eastern North Carolina with filing the necessary documents with the Pension Bureau. Sadly, many today are familiar with the scandals of the contemporary United States Veteran's Administration but know little of the legislation that prompted the earliest days of that bureaucratic giant. The history of the Pension System and the inauguration of the USCT are nearly simultaneous. The same general wartime necessity prompted the genesis of these historical phenomenon. Using various primary and secondary sources, this thesis will reveal how black soldiers of North Carolina regiments struggled to serve the United States in the Civil War. It will further reveal how those soldiers and their families struggled for recognition in a pension system that was unable to comprehend the cultural differences and needs of ex-slaves

At the crossroads : maritime systems in transition and the Elizabeth City Ships' Graveyard, North Carolina by Lindsay S Smith( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Elizabeth City Ships' Graveyard in the Pasquotank River represents the largest assemblage of deliberately discarded watercraft found in North Carolina to date. Applying Annales School principles to the abandonment complex surrounding Elizabeth City, this research aims to illuminate the city's historic maritime interaction on Braudel's three levels of history, the longue durée, conjonctures, and l'histoire événementielle . Grounded in a behavioral/psychological theoretical framework, this research will also provide an analysis of the abandonment complex's site formation and abandonment processes. This thesis will attempt to assess the potential of a combined Behavioral-Annales theoretical approach for supplementing Elizabeth City's established maritime history, expanding archaeologists' knowledge on abandonment patterns seen throughout North Carolina, and contributing to existing worldwide archaeological research on abandoned vessels
Characterizing the deceased mariners of the Swedish warship Vasa : an analysis of personal possessions found in association with human remains by Jessica Diane Smeeks( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On August 10, 1628, as onlookers watched in dismay, the newest and most powerful warship in Northern Europe, a symbol of the prestige and power of Sweden and Sweden's King Gustav II Adolf, heeled over and sank in Stockholm Harbor. At least 30 people lost their lives as Vasa, sails set, descended to the harbor bottom. Intact shipwrecks, such as Vasa, and their associated artifacts prove valuable in revealing the character of historic seamen. They actively reflect this once familiar lifestyle, allowing archaeologists to determine not only the ship's culture but also aspects of its former parent culture. This study seeks to understand shipboard life via an examination of thirteen sailors, two female passengers, and their personal possessions. The primary goals are to identify the distinctive features of a typical sailor on board the Vasa and to determine those features' historical significance. This research considers the history, material, construction, design, and function of 277 artifacts associated with Vasa's human remains. The examination includes the identification, cultural analysis, evaluation, and interpretation of these artifacts
Progressive politics, the McMillan Plan, and the expression of an American identity by Virginia Dodd( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The knowledge that Washington was a city for all Americans and a representative of the ideals and values of this country drove the members of the Senate Park Commission to make Washington the most beautiful, the most healthful, and the most successful city in the nation. In their manufacture of a comprehensive plan for the city, they were influenced by District residents and citizens nationwide alike, and they were under an immense amount of pressure, personal, political, and professional, to present a product of unrivaled quality and expertise. This paper argues that as citizens shaped the District into their idea of an ideal capital, they revealed deep-seated values, including the importance of education, the efficacy of social activism, and the value of nature, which have become fundamental aspects of a uniquely American identity. Chapter 1 summarizes the field of Washingtoniana study and presents the sense of historical discomfort surrounding the capital's ambiguous aesthetic identity. Chapter 2 follows the rise of Americans' patriotic loyalty to their capital city in the first hundred years of its existence. Chapter 3 examines the national and local reform movements that fed the Senate Park Commission's thrust toward the ideal city and society, and Chapter 4 explores how the Plan's reform initiatives specifically altered the capital's foundational plan and legitimized its American loyalties. As a study of the capital district, this paper attempts to extrapolate meaning from the Senate Park Commission's plan for Washington in order to better understand American identity
The succession plans of Augustus and Tiberius by Danielle M Bryan( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis examines the role of Tiberius in Augustus' succession plan. Tiberius was important because he became emperor after Augustus' death at Nola in AD 14. Augustus wanted a direct family heir, someone of Julian descent, to succeed him. In order to achieve and ensure this goal would be carried out even in the event of his death he created a succession plan that had to be revised several times throughout his life because of unfortunate deaths. Augustus did not consider the fact that Tiberius had dynastic concerns of his own. As Augustus' succession plan evolved it included and affected Tiberius' own dynastic concerns
TECHNOLOGY AND EMPIRE: Comparing Dutch and British Maritime Technologies During the Napoleonic Era (1792-1815) by Ivor Mollema( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The two ships, Bato (1806) and Brunswick (1805) wrecked in Simons Bay, South Africa, provide an opportunity to compare British and Dutch maritime technologies during the Napoleonic Era (1792-1815). The former was a Dutch 74-gun ship of the line and the latter a British East Indiaman. Their remains reveal pertinent information about the maritime technologies available to each European power. Industrial capacity and advanced metal working played a significant role in ship construction initiatives of that period, while the dwindling timber supplies forced invention of new technologies. Imperial efforts during the Napoleonic Era relied on naval power. Maritime technologies dictated imperial strategy as ships were deployed to expand or maintain colonial empires. Naval theorists place the strategy into a wider spectrum and the analysis of the material culture complements further understanding of sea power. The study also recommends management options to preserve the archaeological sites for future study and to showcase for heritage tourism
Seafaring women : an investigation of material culture for potential archaeological diagnostics of women on nineteenth-century sailing ships by R. Laurel Seaborn( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 19th century, women went to sea on sailing ships. Wives and family accompanied captains on their voyages from New England. They wrote journals and letters that detailed their life on board, adventures in foreign ports, and feelings of separation from family left behind. Although the women kept separate from the sailors as class and social status dictated, they contributed as nannies, nurses and navigators when required. Examination of the historical documents, ship cabin plans, and photos of those interiors, as well as looking at surviving ships, such as the whaleship Charles W. Morgan, provided evidence of the objects women brought and used on board. The investigation from a gendered perspective of the extant material culture, and shipwreck site reports laid the groundwork for finding potential archaeological diagnostics of women living on board
