We are back at Miller Grove this year, once again working with our partners at Southern Illinois University. Through archaeological investigations, we will continue to uncover bits and pieces of past life in the pre-Civil War, free African-American community. This year work will focus on the rural farmstead of Harrison and Lucinda Miller. Harrison and Lucinda Miller and all seven of their children were manumitted in Marshall County, Tennessee, and traveled to southern Illinois in the 1840s to begin a new life as free people of color. They were soon joined by six other families to build the community that came to be known as Miller Grove. So please join us in June as we learn more about this unique community nestled in the heart of the Shawnee National Forest!
