    This website is great! I was wondering what your policy is on pictures? I would like to use one of your pictures of a Bridgeport factory woman in a video I am making for a college project. Is this okay? Thank you very much!

    I’m with American Spirit magazine, the member magazine of the Daughters of the American Revolution. In our January/February issue we are running an article about Black kings and governors of early New England.

    A black governor could be called on to perform important functions within his community, and the position commanded respect from both black and white residents. In many towns the governor meted out punishments and upheld law and order among the African American inhabitants. He also acted as a mediator between the black and white communities.

    Does the New England Historical Society have any images available that we could use to illustrate the article for our readers?

    Thank you. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks for the great articles, and I love the format. From time to time I “repost” a snippet on my blog Storeis from Ipswich and the North Shore at and it links to the full article here. I also have an RSS feed on my site to this site, and I provide reciprocating links or RSS feeds to any relevant site or blog about New England history.
