Madison Historians announce discovery

Among the service projects of Madison Historians, JMU's history club, is work at Montpelier, the ancestral home of James Madison. Each semester members devote at least one Saturday assisting in the restoration of the fourth president's home. Usually students help the archaeologist, however, they have done other chores from washing windows to digging up shrubs. Mad Historians helped move the furniture from one of the sections of the mansion that was to be demolished. On a recent work trip, a student who was raking leaves discovered two graves that were believed to be those of freed slaves.
