Working with the National Park Service and the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site team to make sure the community of Archery, Georgia near President Carter’s boyhood home establishes its place in history, Dr. Jackson’s work has Carter’s personal attention. The nation’s 39th president is both excited and supportive of the project and our research efforts in heritage studies.
Research at the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site and surrounding communities—Archery and Plains, Georgia was funded by National Park Service grant no. J5690090007-H5000085095. The project which began in 2009 was led by PI, Dr. Antoinette Jackson.
