We would like to thank Dr. Pearson for her constant encouragement and immense knowledge throughout our process of creating this website. This final product would have not been possible without her persistent efforts to get us access to the server even in the midst of snow/ice storms and uncooperative websites. Lastly, thank you for the opportunity to create something that not only allowed us to better our skills in both history and technology, but allowed us to create a site in which history is made more accessible to the general public.
We would like to thank Dr. Cameron for allowing our class to work with her students this semester in a cohesive history and computer science project. Thank you for making time for our classes to meet and helping us create projects that were both possible for your students and beneficial for our website.
