Following the interception of Louis’ missive to his brother-in-law Emperor Leopold II, the National Assembly ordered the king placed under house arrest and prepared for immediate trial.

This project, “Set in Stone: Primary Sources in the History of the Granite State,” is a collaboration between Professors John Lund and Graham Warder of Keene State College. Our site employs digitized primary sources (manuscripts, photographs, publications, etc.) from New Hampshire to illustrate larger national historical trends. We use these resources in our own classes and make them available for others to use in their high school and college history courses.
