American History Major Danielle Powers spent 8 weeks as an intern at the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania Military Park. It was a lot of work, but she'd do it again! "I would do it again because the ability to encourage or spark an individual’s interest in history and help them make a connection to that history is extremely rewarding" Powers said.

Not unlike in our own time, for every dark moment in the Middle Ages there was also light. That is, the so-called “Dark Ages” were full of renaissances! The Italian Renaissance usually gets all the attention, but personally, the renaissance of the 12th century is my favorite pre-Renaissance renaissance. (Prof. Bent: I am not throwing down my glove.)
