John Collins & Chartism In Birmingham


New Member
Dear Admin, Not sure if this is allowed: I have built a website about the chartist John Collins (1802-1852) born and raised in Birmingham. He was a leader of the Birmingham Political Union, a leading orator during the Chartist Movement, and became the first working class man elected to the town council. The website contains historical information about Collins and the Chartist Movement as it began in Birmingham. If Admin thinks this would be of interest to members and appropriate, would it be OK to post a link to the website: www.chartistcollins.com
