Online Talk "Pistols for Two, Coffee for One: The Art of the 19th Century American Duel.”
Tuesday, May 24, 2022 at noon

Please join Winedale on Tuesday, May 24, at noon for its monthly online talk, “Pistols for Two, Coffee for One: The Art of the 19th Century American Duel.”

In September 1826, Sam Houston fought a duel in Tennessee.  Oddly enough, neither Houston nor the man he dueled had any animosity for each other but instead were entangled by the 19th century Code Duello. Join Derrick Birdsall, director of the Sam Houston Memorial Museum, who will discuss Houston’s 1826 duel and the code that he fought by.
