The Founders' Mormon Neighbors


Now that I'm in the research phase of my doctoral program at Penn, I find myself often distracted by those things for which I am not looking, like this bizarre organizing schema for microfilm at the National Archives and Records Administration in Washington, DC.

Don't ask me why the Mormon Battalion pension (or pay) records from the 1840s were filed adjacent to the Continental Congress records, including the debates surrounding the Revolutionary War and Independence in 1776, but it was mildly amusing.

Mormon Battalion Records upper right, Continental Congress from I believe the second to fourth rows.  Crazy.
