Currently I have 3 ideas that I’m playing around with…
1) The creation of a collection of maps that pinpoint the locations of monuments relating to specific historical events or times. For example, one map may show all monuments and memorials in DC that relate to American Wars and another map may show all monuments and memorials that display or relate to the Founding Fathers.
2) Building a timeline which displays the focuses of Presidential Inauguration speeches or State of the Union Addresses through the use of visual programs such as Wordle.
3) Create a digital exhibit of the historical memorials and monuments located on the grounds of the United States Military Academy. I would also include small descriptions of the pieces and place them in an order through which the history of West Point can be explained.
