Two one-week Landmarks workshops for eighty school teachers to study the national implications of the War of 1812's northwestern frontier.

"The War of 1812 in the Great Lakes and Western Territories" consists of two one-week NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops held during summer 2012 for eighty school teachers on the causes, conduct, and consequences of the War of 1812 in the Midwestern United States. Hosted by the Ohio Historical Society [OHS], the workshop investigates the War of 1812 by considering several major topics: the war's causes; the complicated interactions of Euro-Americans, British, Canadians, and Native Americans during the conflict; and the war's short- and long-term effects. The project utilizes important military sites, including River Raisin Battlefield, Fort Meigs, and Perry's Victory and International Peace Monument. The project staff includes co-directors Brian Schoen (history, Ohio University) and Rebecca Trivison (OHS) and visiting faculty members Alan Taylor (history, University of California, Davis), Andrew Cayton (history, Miami University, Ohio), Gregory Dowd (history, University of Michigan), Susan Sleeper-Smith (history, Michigan State University), Gerard Altoff (National Park Service), Ralph Naveaux (Monroe County Historical Museum), and David Skaggs (history, Bowling Green State University). The program includes lectures, discussions, site visits, primary-source sessions, and work on teaching projects. The participants read secondary works by members of the visiting faculty and other scholars. Primary sources include an Indian captivity narrative, missionary letters, correspondence by William Henry Harrison, President James Madison's war message, and the full text of "The Star-Spangled Banner"; participants also receive a primary-source database from the OHS archives for use in creating lesson plans.

Two one-week workshops for seventy-two teachers on the Hopewell, an American Indian civilization that flourished in Ohio between 100 BCE and 400 CE.

The Creative Learning Factory at the Ohio Historical Society offers a six-day program for teachers to explore the Hopewell landscape at the Newark Earthworks, Fort Ancient, and the five earthworks included in Hopewell Cultural National Historical Park: Mound City, Hopeton Earthworks, Hopewell Mound Group, Seip Earthworks, and High Bank Works. The Hopewell culture reached its fullest expression in the valleys of the major streams that flowed southward into the Ohio River in southern Ohio and neighboring Indiana during the Middle Woodland period, which spanned between 100 BCE and 400 CE. The Hopewell culture is best known for its monumental earthworks and the broad range of exotic raw materials its artisans acquired and crafted into distinctive works of art. Hopewellian earthworks, such as the sprawling Newark Earthworks and Fort Ancient, represent a florescence of art, architecture, ritual, and interregional interaction that was unparalleled in North America up to that time. The workshop immerses teachers in the Hopewell culture of ancient America through field study opportunities and scholarly presentations. Director Elizabeth Hedler (historian, Ohio Historical Society) is joined by lead faculty Bradley Lepper (curator of archaeology, Ohio Historical Society), Terry Barnhart (historian, Eastern Illinois University), Steven Warrant (historian, Augustana College), Robert Riordan (anthropologist, Wright State University), Bret Ruby (archaeologist, Hopewell Culture National Historical Park), Richard Shiels (historian, Ohio State University), Glenna Wallace (Chief of the Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma), and Linda Pansing (curator, Ohio Historical Society). Specific themes to be covered in the presentation and discussion sessions include "Early Efforts at Surveying and Mapping the Mounds"; "Hopewell Sites and Artifacts in American Popular Culture"; "Ancient Life and Hunting Strategies," "Building the Hopewell Landscape: Fort Ancient and the Earthworks of Southern Ohio"; "Octagon Earthworks and Hopewell Astronomy"; and " 'A Ranging Sort of People': Slavery and Diaspora in Early America." In addition, participants engage in a simulated archaeological dig, visit major excavations, hike interpretive trails, and watch interactive videos to expand their understanding of the sites. Readings for the workshop include Ray Hively and Robert Horn's description of the lunar alignments found at the Newark Earthworks; papers by James Brown and Robert Hall regarding Hopewell culture and ritual; and Peter Nabokov's study of American Indian sacred places.

Two one-week Landmarks workshops for fifty community college faculty members to study the national implications of the War of 1812's northwestern frontier.

"The War of 1812 in the Great Lakes and Western Territories" consists of two one-week NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops held during summer 2012 for fifty community college faculty members on the national implications of the War of 1812's northwestern frontier. The program engages new scholarship on the under-examined War of 1812, now considered of central importance to early American history. In particular, the workshop explores conflicts that emanated from the northwestern borderlands of northern Ohio and southern Michigan, with Native Americans and Europeans threatening to destabilize the nation. Three sites (the River Raisin Battlefield, Fort Meigs, and Perry's Victory and International Peace Monument) anchor the project's regional focus. These are combined with lectures by and discussions with visiting scholars whose complementary expertise allows for a thorough examination of the topic. Alan Taylor (University of California, Davis) and Andrew Cayton (Miami University, Ohio) discuss the war's significance to the nation; David Skags (Bowling Green State University) and Gerard Atloff (National Park Service) treat military and geographic topics; and Gregory Dowd (University of Michigan) and Susan Sleeper-Smith (Michigan State University) address the conflict with Native Americans. Three core books support a number of additional readings: Taylor's Pulitzer Prize-winning The Civil War of 1812; Skaggs and Atloff's A Signal Victory: The Lake Erie Campaign; and Sandy Antal's A Wampum Denied: Proctor's War of 1812, which examines U.S. diplomacy with Native Americans in the Northwest. Attention is given to archival materials as well as to the use of sites in the teaching of history.

A three-week college and university summer institute for twenty-five participants on the career and influence of African-American writer Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906).

The Creative Learning Factory at the Ohio Historical Society (the Factory) seeks $136,248 in support for a National Endowment of the Humanities Summer Institute for College Faculty entitled Race and Dialect: Paul Laurence Dunbar and American Literary History. Known during his lifetime as the “Poet Laureate of the Negro race,” Dunbar was, at the time of his death, the most famous poet in America. During his short but productive life—Dunbar died at age thirty three in 1906 from tuberculosis—he produced twelve collections of poetry, four novels, four collections of short stories, and numerous songs, dramatic works, and essays in leading American periodicals. The Factory proposes a three-week summer institute in July 2015 to examine Dunbar’s literary legacy, specifically the ways race and dialect influenced his career and his relationships with both the publishing industry and the reading public.

The development of a platform that supports the sharing of humanities content through mobile tours in both exterior and interior spaces, building on Curatescape and Wordpress platforms.

While there is no shortage of digital experience options for cultural heritage institutions, the number of realistic options for today’s small-­- and medium-­-sized institutions is unfortunately slim, and museums of all sizes still struggle to deliver engaging mobile experiences. TourSites for WordPress: Digital Tour Experiences for Multisite Museum Networks will create a digital platform that combines WordPress and Curatescape into a new opportunity for the field. This project builds on previous collaborations between the Ohio History Connection and the Center for Public History + Digital Humanities and leverages their respective expertise to create a new set of tools specifically for the WordPress Network environment. The open-­-source platform created by this project will enable any institution to create digital tour experiences across multiple locations, maintain those networks with efficient use of resources and connect the public to stories, people and places in innovative ways.

A cooperative agreement for a three-year faculty and curriculum development project on the history of nine midwestern Native American groups for thirty-six community college faculty and academic administrators in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma.

A cooperative agreement for a three-year faculty and curriculum development project on the history of nine midwestern Native American groups for thirty-six community college faculty and academic administrators in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma. Noting that the removal of midwestern Indians is not as well known or studied as the southern Trail of Tears, the Ohio Historical Society (OHS), in partnership with Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College, received support for a three-year project on the history of the nine Native American tribes removed from Ohio in the nineteenth century. Faculty and administrators from community colleges in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma - states through which these tribes traveled and in which they resettled - participate in a series of conferences and webinars designed to help them include the history and cultures of these groups in their courses. The project begins with a conference at OHS on Ohio's Native American history. In addition to content sessions with scholars John Bowes (Eastern Kentucky University), Randal Buchman (emeritus, Defiance College), Linda Sue Warner (Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College), Stephen Warren (Augustana College), Melissa Rinehart (Miami University), Dawn Marsh (Purdue University), and Sharon Dean (OHS), participants also visit prehistoric mounds at Hopewell Culture National Historic Park, discuss ways to teach Native American history, and conduct research in the Ohio Historical Society's collections. The second conference takes place in Miami, Oklahoma, and features sessions on the removal of midwestern tribes. Other experts would join the scholars from the first conference: George Ironstack (University of Miami) and tribal representatives, including Glenna Wallace, chief of the Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma; Seneca-Cayuga language preservationist Paul Barton; and Wyandot artist Richard Zane Smith. Conferences are supplemented by webinars led by scholars and tribal representatives on a variety of topics, including working with primary sources related to Indian history, tribal governance, Native American arts, and the challenges of language preservation. Finally, participants share the outcomes of their projects at a closing conference. Participants work with a range of primary sources--maps, treaties, letters, diaries, artifacts--and read secondary works by project scholars and other historians, anthropologists, and linguists.

The collection includes rarities, such as male dolls as well as dolls by makers Karen Germany, Norah Wellings, Mrs. Conception Vargas Alfonso, and Marcella Welch. Proper preservation supplies will help prevent deterioration of fabric, discoloration, fading, and other conditions.

The National Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center (NAAMCC) is requesting $6,000 to purchase archival supplies for the preservation of the recently acquired Lillian M. Bartok Doll Collection. Lillian M. Bartok was a long-time supporter of NAAMCC. During her adult life, Ms. Bartok created a unique and significant collection of African American dolls. Her daughter, Jennifer Bartok, has continued supporting NAAMCC by donating the collection to our museum. With an estimated 800 dolls, the Bartok collection includes examples of the rare and the common, the antique and the new, the commercial and the artisan, the humorous and the shocking. All of them need to be researched, described, inventoried, and preserved for storage and future use.

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Ohio newspapers published prior to 1963, as part of the state’s sixth round of participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). This phase would focus on three themes: community building, democracy, and transportation.

Ohio History Connection requests $319,511 from NEH to digitize 100,000 pages of Ohio’s microfilmed newspapers to continue the National Digital Newspaper Program in Ohio. By the end of 2020, OHC had digitized over 520,000 pages for Chronicling America, from various viewpoints, time periods, and areas of the state. In this round, we will build on this existing collection by focusing on papers that document Ohio’s transportation infrastructure, history of community building, and democracy in the state’s most transformative periods (pre-1835 and 1920-1963). Stories captured by these titles will amplify those already told in Chronicling America while exposing untold and lesser-known histories. From the impact of westward expansion and European settlement on the land we now call Ohio to the ways Ohioans caused and coped with change resulting from significant national and world events and movements, Ohio’s history both represents and is instrumental to understanding that of the entire U.S. [Edited by staff.]
