Abstract
Eleven students from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire (UWEC) attended the Montana Heritage Commission's (MHC) Fourth Public History Field School held in Virginia City, Montana from June 8-25, 2011. The MHC field schools are held in partnership with Washington State University (WSU) and the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes of Fort Hall Indian Reservation Idaho. The purpose of this study was to immerse students in the history and culture of the region and introduce them to various public history sub-fields under the tutelage of practicing professionals. This experience gives students an appreciation for studying history where it took place.
