How did social class influence the lives of women during the early national period (1783-1815)? Project Update

Hi all,

I hope you all had a nice week off with the snow.  I do not want to abandon the project we began before we left so here is the schedule that will need to be strictly adhered to.   Once we complete the project we will move on to studying the era of Jacksonian Democracy, western movement, technological expansion, and the different social movements of the era.

At this point everyone should have completed the internet research and the textbook portion of the project.
