Cotton Mather's Magnalia Christi Americana

Much of New England's colonial history and church history can be found in the book written in 1702 by Cotton Mather, called "Magnalia Christi Americana; or, The Ecclesiastical History of New England". Several editions and volumes can be found here.

This work is packed full of stories and valuable information about the lives of the early settlers of New England.

For example, an event involving Samuel Leonardson (Leonard) is recounted in the excerpt shown below.
