Dr.Willis taught us about the history of the land prior to the founding to
Sewanee. On our hike we visited locations where native Americans had taken
shelter and a coal mine shaft from the 19th century. Dr.Willis also
pointed out multiple natural springs which were the main water sources of
Sewanee for many years. At the end of the hike we visited a replica of
Sewanee's corner stone and learned how the civil war altered the building
of the school.
