Historical Pamphlets are now Available for Purchase from the BMFA !!
Ordinary Bullards have been involved one way or another in many if not most of the significant historical events of their times. Bullards have rarely been at the center of things, but they do well represent the involvement of ordinary persons. Perhaps they exemplify the fundamental nature and significance of historical events and portray them more accurately than do the descriptions and analyses by prominent political figures, or as expressed through the limited understanding of a member of the social or religious elite, who wrote most of the histories. My thesis is that a person who reads all of the pamphlets will gain a significantly better grasp of the causes and effects of some major events in our colonial history than they would otherwise have.
