Please send me the source for your statement that Abijah wrote an account of the Battle of Bunker Hill and a copy of the actual
account if you have it.
I enjoy your Website. Would you be interested in an account of my project of writing an historical novel of Abijah Bigelow's life in
Waltham, New Braintree, Barre, and later immigration to Michigan City? I am descended from Abijah and Mercy Amelia through
their daughter Lucy.
P. S. I am using my wife's email address.
The account of Battle of Bunker Hill was published in:
FORGE, The Bigelow Society Quarterly; Vol. 5, No. 4, Oct. 1976.
