As the decades of research (part-time) for Shot Tower, my own historical novel, wound down and writing revved up posts appeared on this site about items I found or knew about. Some would relate to the story in the book and some were interesting on their own. Some may relate to a sequel or to other work in the projected series. All are in We’ll See status at the moment.
Slog through the posts starting with this one about the Merchant’s Hotel, a Philadelphia setting in the story. Proceed though by clicking the links above the post, arrow pointing to the right for later post, to the left for earlier.
Sources include the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, the Free Library of Philadelphia and books in my own modest library. These are listed on the Shot Tower Unbibliography page.
