Grant allows insight into Jackson's slaves





Archaeologists at The Hermitage can catalog nearly a million artifacts from the plantation's slaves after a $285,000 grant was awarded to the historic museum Monday.

The grant, one of 149 awarded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, will allow archeologists to document and re-analyze some 800,000 slave artifacts that have been found on the property since excavations began in 1970.
