Crossing swords after Bunker Hill

J.L. Bell begins to tell us the story of one of the Massachusetts Historical Society's more unusual mementos from the Battle of Bunker (yes, really Breed's) Hill: A large plaque with crossed swords, one used during the battle by Col. William Prescott from the provincial troops and the other used by Capt. John Linzee of the Royal Navy.

They really patched things up in the later generations. A Prescott married a descendant of the LInzee's.
