Now the historian aims for a second chance. [via A&L daily]
The moral I take away from this story is: always use spreadsheets to analyse probate inventories (possibly several, combined into a simple database).
But I'm also curious -- I didn't follow this much at the time (it seemed like a hackjob, though this article implies that criticism can from a variety of places), but has anyone reproduced his probate research (or done similar) on gun-holding in the early US?
