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
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

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
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
Confederate wooden gunboat construction logistical nightmare by Adam C Edmonds( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Confederate States Navy built wooden gunboats throughout the American Civil War. Within Civil War literature, more research and detailed analysis of Confederate States Navy construction focuses on building of ironclad vessels. Wooden gunboat construction is largely ignored. This thesis examines wooden gunboat construction in two different areas of the Confederacy: northeastern North Carolina in Washington and Elizabeth City, and the Mars Bluff Navy Yard in South Carolina. Before presenting two Confederate wooden gunboat construction case studies, a look at Confederate industrial, manufacturing, and transportation infrastructure, from the national perspective, brings into focus the logistical limitations station commanders faced in northeastern North Carolina and at Mars Bluff more clearly. Scattered, yet interdependent, marine manufacturing and ordnance facilities, connected by a suspect transportation network, created a logistical nightmare. Historical investigation into wooden gunboat construction in Washington, Elizabeth City, and Mars Bluff, examines an overlooked Confederate States Navy building program
For the men on the ground : an examination of the Tuscaroras-colonial relations in North Carolina before and during the Tuscarora War by Matthew Cameron Esterline( )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Despite constant interactions with potential benefits to both Tuscaroras and colonial cultures, and knowledge of the issues plaguing local tribes, John Lawson, Baron Christopher Von Graffenreid, and other colonial leaders failed to keep an increasingly fragile peace. As a result, the Tuscarora War erupted in 1711. This thesis examines the role of interactions between the Tuscarora Indians and the colonists of North Carolina before, during, and after the assault on New Bern in 1711 - the opening act of the Tuscarora War. These interactions are represented by available, and mostly colonial, records of the men on the ground during this time period. Even though some of the best possible representatives of colonists and Native Americans existed and interacted during early efforts at diplomacy, the war between these two distinct peoples in North Carolina occurred. This is a story of community told through the eyes of specific individuals in the surrounding area of New Bern. Regardless of their high stature, seemingly above the level of the common individual, they stand as men on the ground level of the conflict that developed from rising tensions between the colonists and the Tuscaroras. Even those of note in the periphery, including a Virginia lieutenant governor and a South Carolina colonel, are brought to the conflict through their actions and observations. The end result of this thesis is to present, through specific chapters focusing on these men on the ground, along with a historiography incorporating reflections of relations between the Tuscaroras and the colonists, an image of Tuscarora-colonial relations in this time period building to the beginning of the Tuscarora War in North Carolina. This thesis is an attempt to contribute and expand the historiography of Tuscarora-colonist relations in Carolina. By avoiding the generalities of previous histories, and focusing instead primarily on the pre-Tuscarora War period from the perspectives of both the colonists and the Tuscaroras, a fuller view of this important time period in North Carolina history can finally be fully presented. The primary method of my work will consist of document investigation and examination. Another method will consist of in-person and electronic interviews with people with knowledge of the topic and time period. A historiographical examination of written works on the Tuscaroras will contribute to this examination of attitudes. Finally, I intend to close the thesis with an epilogue concerning my own personal history with my research into the Tuscaroras
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
A view through the periscope : advanced and geospatial visualization of naval battlefields by Stephen Paul Sanchagrin( )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Battlefield visualizations have existed for nearly ten thousand years and are found in almost all corners of the world. These may range from simple representations of opposing hunting parties depicted in Neolithic cave art to the examples found in today's military atlases. The practices used to visualize these, almost ubiquitous human acts, have changed along with the sciences, arts, and military technology and strategy. Although the most drastic changes in military technology have occurred within the last century, little advancement has been made concerning battlefield visualization techniques. Essentially, new military technologies and strategies have been visualized with outdated techniques and methodologies. This study attempts to identify the key trends and deficiencies in battlefield visualizations so that new or alternative techniques may be proposed. Inspiration for these alternative methodologies will come from closely associated academic disciplines that already utilize these techniques. Once these trends and techniques are identified, then an exploration into these innovated battlefield visualization techniques is possible. These new and innovative techniques are important because they advance the discourse of battlefield visualizations and may increase the conveyance of ideas between scholars and the public
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
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
