Introduction

Hi, I’m Carrie. I’m a junior studying Historic Preservation and plan on going on to work in museums. I’m originally from Fort Worth, Texas and just to get it out of the way, no, I don’t really like the Cowboys. I’ve always really loved history, especially the Civil War and early 20th century British history.

I never know what to write in introductions, and usually end up throwing out facts like my socks almost never match, or that my favorite candy is sour gummy worms.

This is a picture of one of my favorite historical figures. His name was Peter Rafferty and he was a private in Company B of the Irish Brigade during the Civil War. He was wounded several times during the Battle of Malvern Hill in 1862 and was eventually awarded one of the first Medals of Honor.
