One Collection, Many Dramas

Check out my recent blog post on Fondly, Pennsylvania, the archives and conservation blog of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania.

I highlighted one of the many interesting stories I've discovered in the Wister and Butler families papers (HSP collection 1962): the three duels in which Pierce (Mease) Butler participated between 1844 and 1866.

You'll have to read my post to learn how he survived so many duels.
