Hello All,I am in the process of developing a performance piece about peaceful resistance to the War of 1812 by conciencious objectors of the time.I am trying to find material such as letters and articles written by some of these folk. Also I would love to use some songs or hymns that might have been used by people who for religious reasons did not want to participate.Any help with this gratefully appreciated.Thank youMark Finnanmfinnan@bell.net or 705 745 7188
