About Me

My name is Maddie Shiflett and I am a junior at the University of Mary Washington, double majoring in history and historic preservation.

I am a huge Civil War buff, so I spend a lot of my free time attending reenactments and visiting battlefields. I am from New Kent, Virginia, which is located around a lot of historical sites including the Seven Days battlefields and Cold Harbor, so I have spent a lot of time visiting these battlefields in particular.

Other interests of mine include baking, painting, and running. I live on a river and like to spend my time outside, knee-boarding and gardening.

This site is where I will upload assignments for HIST 297 and 298. Links to additional course websites are included under the personal tab.
