The last couple of days at the log cabin program have been incredible--the participants are working as a team hewing, notching, and assembling the cabin. Yesterday we had some rain, but moved to Montpelier's Operations and Maintenance facility for four hours of hewing--then back to the site in the afternoon! I wish we could keep everyone for a month and build all the quarters we found as part of our NEH slave quarter study! (for more, see http://www.neh.gov/news/unearthing-the-lives-montpeliers-slaves)
