Broadsides: Colonial Era Broadsides
This gallery of colonial era broadsides form part of our Broadsides Collection G 1157. The cataloging of these works is on ongoing project, and new records are added as we receive funding. Preservation, electronic cataloging and digitization for the colonial era broadsides dating from 1728 through April of 1775 was made possible by generous grants from the Rhode Island Society of Colonial Wars and the General Society of Colonial Wars. The work on broadsides from 1775-1783 is generously supported by the Rhode Island Society of the Sons of the Revolution and the Rhode Island Society of the Sons of the American Revolution.
