Pike’s Cantonment, Plattsburgh NY, USA


1812 winter encampment, officer’s cabin. Third season of excavation by Dr. Timothy Abel, students through Clinton Community College, and Battle of Plattsburgh Association volunteers.

I am a “mature” computer information systems major at Clinton Community College, hoping to improve on my old BFA (studio art ceramics, Ohio State) as far as employability. I jumped at the chance to see data coming right out of the ground, and history unearthed right nearby. I hope to return to this project next year as a museum volunteer.
