I just finished writing an article a few days ago entitled People with Disabilities in Colonial America. It was published on Ezinearticles.com. I have added it to my website because it pertains directly to the characters in The Pride of the King. The crew, and on a broader scale, all of the members of The Pride of the King had a disability of some kind. This article gives short overview of how people with disabilities were viewed and treated in Early America. Material is definitely scant on the subject.
