Good work on the images, if a little “last minute.” Remember that all these entries must have citations, unless you took them yourself and do not want anyone to know. This is a history methods blog, after all. And, when you can, title your blog entry.
But good work.

Just a confirmation that the final presentation of your project will be at the Cumberland County Historical Society on December 16, 2010 starting at 2 p.m.
Only one person has asked me about the eight page final paper that is due on December 18, 2010, according to the course outline. I suppose that those are all written and therefore nothing to worry about.
I was thinking of leaving this post up overnight as it is but that would be cruel. Not that cruel is a problem with me but fairness is. So, here is what I am requiring for a final piece of writing in History 304, to be due on the 18th at noon. Since the presentation has emerged as the main focus of the final days, you will no longer be required to write a long paper, either as a group or individually. Instead, you will hand in no shorter than two full pages and no more than three pages of well-written and concise personal reflection on the project and the work you have been doing in the past months – what you set out to do, how thinking evolved, what historical methods you employed, how this project related or did not relate to our historiography work and our study of Tosh’s ideas, what you felt you achieved, and most importantly what you were able to learn about the historical method with this project. These will be individual reflections, not coordinated with other members of your group.
We can talk more about this if need be tomorrow. Additions (and deletions) of buildings are closing in class tomorrow and a very soon deadline will be set for completed spreadsheets.
Good luck. See you tomorrow.
A few more images.
Two responses to the Exam Question blog in three days. I hope that the spreadsheets are going better than that!
More images. Recognize them?
Please give me your scheduled final exam times everyone, as soon as possible, in comments below. Thanks.
Walking to a meeting with House Divided this fine morning.
Please spread the word that I will most probably be late on Wednesday. You can come on time to meet and argue about which structures were there in 1860 till I get there. Or you can come at two o’clock. See you tomorrow!
Walking home … a “today” view.

Thanks to the Cumberland County Historical Society, we have a cleaner and older Sanborn Fire Insurance Map for Carlisle. I am posting them as I prepare them. Click on image for full size. Market Block first.
Nice day today … feeling generous. I have the full size image if you would like it….
