* 2016: Stephanie Walters of George Mason University: Under the direction of Dr. Susannah J. Ural at the University of Southern Mississippi and the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, completed a statistical and digital analysis of Hood's Texas Brigade. The social, military, and census data surrounding the Texas brigade are an excellent example of how the digital humanities can be used to help interested audiences better understand soldiers as individuals or as a large group. This is a continuation of the 2015 project.
