The story of Henry and Bethia Wheeler Bullard, who farmed and raised a family in Holliston, Massachusetts during the nineteenth century can enlarge and enrich that understanding. Henry and Bethia Bullard were born just after the end of the War of 1812, during a decade that saw canals and roads started, mills built and the pulpit tormented by too many opinions.
