Subject: Benj. Fisher's Libby Prison Escape
While editing an interview taped with the late Paul Scheips this past weekend in Buffalo, NY, Scheips was quoted as saying that a large amount of Colonel B.F. Fisher's papers are at Carlisle Barracks.|
There is another stash of Benjamin Franklin Fisher's papers in Philadelphia too dealing with the domestic affairs of Benjamin, his wife and James Causten, Ben's father-in-law.
Incidentally, Signal Officer Fisher was captured at Aldie, Va., well within sight of the Guilford Station signal perch atop Little Pony Mountain.
