Digital Paxton

Digital Paxton, sponsored by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and the Library Company of Philadelphia, serves as a scholarly edition, digital collection, and teaching platform for Pennsylvania’s first major pamphlet war. Thanks to the support of The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, Digital Paxtonwill soon be translated into a standalone graphic novel. To learn more about that project, reference the press release for Redrawing History: Indigenous Perspectives on Colonial America.
