Actual “gotcha” journalism

St. Fagans

I think that I will be doing some work on the press coverage of Horton’s victory near St. Fagans in May 1648. I am not ready to report anything just yet, but I was just reading through Horton’s letter to Fairfax, and he says: “we had a sharp dispute with them for about two hours.” That has little to do with what I will be examining, but I thought that it was hilarious.

Rather, what I will be looking at is a particular type of pamphlet that I’ve seen pop up a few times before in different incarnations. It’s been nice; I’ve been able to do some actual dissertation-related work since classes ended.
