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

With all deliberate speed the Pearsall Plan and school desegregation in North Carolina, 1954-1966 by Arthur L Carlson ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The decision of the United States Supreme Court in Brown v. the Board of Education legally ended the operation of segregated schools in the South. In North Carolina, a series of legal challenges began under the Pupil Assignment Act and, later, the Pearsall Plan to delay the desegregation of the state's school systems. In an effort to avoid massive public demonstrations, violence, and the closing of public schools as a result of public outrage, the Pearsall Plan transferred control of pupil assignments, along with the power to request the closing of schools, to local school boards. The decentralization of desegregation allowed communities to determine the level of social change comfortable to the majority of an area's residents. As a result, no school in any of the over one-hundred independent school systems in North Carolina lost a single day of classes on account of civil disobedience. This thesis examines the background, development, and effect of the Pearsall Plan on North Carolina's educational, political, and social systems. It also outlines the factors that led North Carolina's leaders to deliberately embark down a path with one known ending: the declaration of the unconstitutionality of the Pearsall Plan. The decisions of these individuals and the outcome of their efforts comprise the focus of this thesis
Fire in the hold construction and use of the 1628 Swedish warship Vasa's galley by Eric Ray ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The galley of the 17th century Swedish warship Vasa is currently the only large 17th century naval galley available for study. It was surveyed by the author in 2008. While the galley's wooden structure remains largely intact to the present day, its fittings and layout are much changed. A digitally-aided reconstruction shows how it was filled with bricks, and that its large cauldron likely hung from a crane suspended from the aft wall. Documentary sources place the galley closer in historical context to a medieval terrestrial kitchen than to a 17th century kitchen. The galley's smoke bay is much the same as those installed in country houses during the centuries preceding Vasa's construction. In the final analysis, Vasa's galley is an inexpensive construct, valuing frugality over convenience. Yet, it would have been suitable to cook the sort of provisions provided to the crew by the Swedish Navy
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
"From quiet woods to tide kissed shore" searching for the colonial port of Sunbury, Georgia by Stephen D Dilk ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This thesis chronicles efforts to examine a unique colonial waterfront complex in Sunbury, Georgia comprised of four distinct colonial wharf sites. To carry out an explanation of these features and Sunbury's overall land-water interface, this thesis utilizes Immanuel Wallerstein's World-Systems Theory in conjunction with extensive historical research and archaeological survey. The project's primary aim will be to identify novel aspects of Sunbury's economy and society through archaeology. Secondary goals include an investigation into the port's role locally and abroad. A corollary to this aim will be to connect the lifespan of the wharf sites to larger forces affecting the town
John Lawson Symposium, East Carolina University, October 19, 2001 ( Visual )

John Lawson was an English naturalist who explored the Carolina upcountry in 1701. Historians, archaeologists, and naturalists explore the social, cultural, and environmental changes that resulted from European contact during that period in the North Carolina's history
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
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
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
