William Johnson Crawford Newgate Escape

THIS is SO SO COOL!!!! It’s like a secret code that high schoolers can’t read any more!

These are the actual 1700s records from the escape and tracking down of William Johnson Crawford, the “hero” of my upcoming novel series. Plus some of his cohorts. They escaped from the Newgate Copper Mines Prison back in the late 1700s.

This is so neat :). Can you read the cursive writing?

Thank you so much to the Connecticut State Library for scanning the original documents for me!
