Decatur House: A Home of the Rich and Powerful. Teaching with Historic Places.
Schuldt, Robin Fogg
OAH Magazine of History, v14 n2 p42-53 Win 2000
Presents a lesson that: (1) explores how Stephen Decatur's mansion reflected the importance that the politically ambitious once placed on being in close proximity to sites of authority; and (2) examines Decatur's duel with Commodore Barron in 1820 in order to illustrate how "gentlemen" handled conflicts that compromised their sense of honor.
