<p>This essay reexamines the literature and prints of the Paxton Boysâ 1764 pamphlet war using material culture as its lens. Specifically, by detailing how writers and illustrators narrated or depicted the physical appearance of those involved in this crisisâincluding how they dressed, the props they carried, and the things they pursuedâthis essay analyzes how objects became a visual shorthand with which to embody the ethnic or racial identities of various Pennsylvanians, to critique political opponents, and to persuade audiences. The ââpamphlet warââ was thus not just a war of words, images, or politics, but also one of material representations.</p>
