Article I Wrote: Deerskin coat given to Harvey Baldwin by the Oneida Indians

You may want to check out this interesting article (ha! You like that? I think it’s interesting anyway!) I wrote for the Onondaga Historical Association last year and finally published it on their website: Deerskin coat given to Harvey Baldwin by the Oneida Indians as a gift for helping them survive the cold year of 1816. The coat is beautifully beaded, and the cold year has something to do with a volcano. Check it out!
