N.C. Miscellany’s Washington correspondent (a Tar Heel who, by circumstance, is forced to live in exile) shares this bit of news with us: William Richardson Davie’s sword has returned to Salisbury. The city bestowed the ceremonial weapon upon Davie in 1780. Davie, you may recall, interrupted his law studies in Salisbury to lead a local cavalry troop in the Revolutionary War.
