A little history lesson

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.
