Common-Place, the Journal of Early American Life Summer 2017 edition features an article by Will Fenton on the ever-growing Digital Paxton project.  CLICK HERE to view article. 



Project Background 

As an archive, Digital Paxton collects more than 170 political cartoons, manuscripts, broadsides, pamphlets, and German-language translations of pamphlets related to the Paxton incident. The original papers reside at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, the Library Company of Philadelphia, the American Philosophical Society, the Moravian Archives, and Haverford College Quaker and Special Collections. Currently, Digital Paxton features more than 1,600 free, open-source, print-quality (300 dpi) images. In the future, I hope to expand the archive to include materials residing at Lancaster History and the Historical Society of Dauphin County.
