A Historian of Dueling in Early America Uncovers a 7th Grade History Paper

Most of our readers know Joanne Freeman.  She teaches history at Yale, is a co-host at Backstory Radio, and is the author of Affairs of Honor: National Politics in the New Republic and editor of the recent The Essential Hamilton.

I am a regular reader of Freeman’s always entertaining twitter feed.  (You should be too!) Yesterday, she tweeted the first page of an essay she wrote in 7th grade.
