Material Life in Revolutionary America: Artifacts and Issues in the Classroom.
Sanford, Douglas W.
OAH Magazine of History, v8 n4 p27-31 Sum 1994
Contends that artifacts found during archaeological research can open up alternative ways to explore, reexamine, and even rewrite history. Maintains that material culture explores three aspects of Revolutionary American life: (1) the nature of day-to-day life; (2) the fluctuating circumstances of enslaved African-Americans; and (3) how Revolutionary warfare and military life affected soldiers and officers.
