Porter in the Press

As he develops the topic "Porter in the Press" [working title] for Strawbery Banke Museum's forthcoming exhibit catalog, Salem State University Professor Dane Morrison uncovered the following telling comment:

The Providence Post says Fitz John Porter has fought more battles, won more victories, and possesses more brains and patriotism, than every man of the court which tried him, and the hounds who assailed him.
---The Laconia Democrat, 13 February 1863
