I just saw an interview with the author of this book:
The Field of Blood: Violence in Congress and the Road to Civil War by Joanne B. Freeman, 2018, Farrar, Straus and Giroux​

Freeman is a professor of history at Yale University (https://www.joannebfreeman.com/)

I have not read the book, but the interview made me think it would be an interesting and useful reference.

Reading this now.

The Cilley-Graves duel has to be one of the stupidest duels I have ever heard of. One refused to accept a letter delivered by the other on behalf of a third party to whom the messenger was not particularly close.
