My name is Elizabeth Cassibry and I am a rising junior at Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland. I am currently double majoring in history and German studies, with a concentration in European studies and a minor in computer science. While at school, I participate in club volleyball, student government, and am the vice president of academic development for Alpha Omicron Pi, Sigma Tau. I was born and raised in an active duty military family and I have moved around my entire life. Currently, I live in Key West, Florida. I am thrilled to be working with Owen and Natalie to further investigate the Maryland 400 and unearth new information of men whose stories have slowly disappeared throughout the past two centuries.
I’ve always felt a strong connection to colonial and early American history. My goal is to become a college professor and show students the role that our past plays in current times. I am so thankful for the opportunity to take an active role in the sharing of history, and I owe a great deal of thanks to the Starr Center at Washington College and the Maryland Society Sons of the American Revolution for giving me the opportunity to help immortalize the Maryland 400 and their legacy.
Throughout the summer if you have any questions or comments regarding my work, don’t be shy, contact me through email or by commenting on my posts! I am always open to learning more and answering your questions. If you want to follow the work I am doing this summer, feel free to check out the Starr Center Facebook page where I give weekly updates on my research.
