Fri, April 21, 2017

The Library Company of Philadelphia, 1314 Locust St.

In December 1763, following years of gruesome frontier warfare, armed settlers in the Paxton Township exacted revenge on an isolated, unarmed Indian settlement, attacked the Lancaster jailhouse where refugees had taken shelter, and vowed to march all the way to Philadelphia. While these "Paxton Boys" were stopped in Germantown by a delegation led by Benjamin Franklin, their critics and apologists spent the next year battling tooth and nail in print. 

Co-sponsored with the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, this event will introduce the Digital Paxton Project (digitalpaxton.org), a digital archive and critical edition of the pamphlet war created by Library Company Fellow Will Fenton, Doctoral Candidate at Fordham University. Alongside Fenton's presentation of the Digital Paxton Project, Scott Paul Gordon, Professor of English at Lehigh University will share his latest Paxton research, "Hidden in Plain Sight: The Paxton Crisis and Moravian Archives." Reception to follow

The exhibition will showcase more than two-dozen exemplary manuscripts, broadsides, pamphlets, and political cartoons from the Library Company, Historical Society of Pennsylvania, American Philosophical Society, and Haverford College Quaker and Special Collections. Access the digital companion today (digitalpaxton.org/exhibition).
