    Hello, I’ve been a resident of a small city in the northeastern tip of Massachusetts for 30 years, and one of the more historically significant people to come out of this city is Josiah Bartlett. There’s even a statue of him right next to our public library. The only things I know about him was that He was a physician, signed the declaration of independence (supposedly he was the second to sign right after John Hancock) as well as the A.O.C., argued for ratification of the constitution, and was president (eventually governer) of New Hampshire. According to Wikipedia he was a Democratic-Republican, which I thought was unusual for a New Englander. Besides a few tidbits of biographical info, I haven’t been able to find much about him. Even works that focus on lesser known founders often don’t feature him. So my question is is it because he’s not really that important or is it just because there really isn’t that much known about him.
    P.S. Sorry if this is long winded.
    – Thanks, Robert
