Contemporary Documents Index

The BMH Contemporary Documents (BMH CD) series
This series consists of some 2,500 documents submitted to the Bureau, many of which are instantly recognisable as iconic documents of the period. These documents were often handed in along with a contributor’s statement, and provide a fascinating insight into many aspects of the revolutionary period. Letters; memos; (now) rare publications; pamphlets; propaganda material; drill manuals; posters and even contemporary currency are included in this series. There were originally two BMH indexes for the contemporary documents: one included basic descriptions from each contributor, for easy reference, while the larger index gives a detailed description of each item. Due to the large size of the Appendix to Contemporary Index, it has been divided in to five documents to facilitate downloading from this website.
