Etahdleuh Doanmoe: From Prisoner to Missionary

Author's note: The Trout Gallery at Dickinson College presented an exhibit entitled "The Carlisle Indian School: 1879-1918" from January 30 to February 28, 2004. Visitors to this exhibit were able to see several pictographs that were once part of an album of drawings presented to Mason D. Pratt by his father, Richard Henry Pratt. The front cover of that album is embossed in gold letters "A Kiowa's Odyssey", and the Kiowa whose drawings formerly rested inside the red covers was Etahdleuh Doanmoe, the subject of this article.

The Family of John Armstrong, Sr. (1717-1795) of Carlisle, Pennsylvania

AIthough the record of John Armstrong, Senior, is fairly complete, and biographies of his sons James and John are available because, like their father, they both served as Congressman, that of his wife and her family, his father, brothers and sisters are sketchy. This paper undertakes an examination of the family with emphasis on those members.
