Principal Investigator: Christine Thompson

Project Summary

This ADVANCE project will build on the results of four National Park Service American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP) grants that were awarded to BSU’s Department of Anthropology and will lead directly to a ABPP grant application in January 2015. The ABPP grant will develop and design interpretive signs to be used at the site of the Battle of the Wabash (1791) and the Battle of Fort Recovery (1794). This ADVANCE grant will fund the investigation and documentation of interpretive signage at various battlefields and the discussion of the design and planning process with groups who implemented these sign design projects.
