Welcome to the Hanover College History Department!
The campus closed on Jan. 6, 2013, due to "extreme weather conditions of low temperatures and snow and ice."
Image: Harriet Powers, a former slave, commemorated in one of her quilts a similarly remarkable "cold Thursday." The left panel shown here depicts the people and animals who died as well as a mule whose breath froze into icicles.
In 1995, the Hanover History Department began a pioneering project to make primary source documents available to students and faculty around the world.
We are delighted that thousands of people continue to use it every day.
Founded in 1992, this is a student-edited journal of student scholarship.
