President Lincoln and Soldiersý Home National Monument
National Trust for Historic Preservation
Last spring I began working as an intern for the National Trust for Historic Preservation at the President Lincoln and Soldiers' Home National Monument in Washington, DC. In my intern capacity I developed an archival storage area, organized and documented artifacts, and created measured drawings and surveys, among other tasks. This summer I was promoted to Research Assistant and worked on projects including reviewing historic documents to develop a timeline of the landscape, structures, and systems of the National Monument as well as researching the occupancy of the cottage. My work at the National Monument has enabled me to conduct research and surveys of the historic core of the Armed Forces Retirement Home as well as to manage the artifacts and archival storage of Lincoln Cottage.
