Pamphlets were vital during the American Revolution -- in educating the colonists and motivating them to throw off the shackles of their British rulers.

If you care to join me in this effort, post here or shoot me an email. People with printing experience or the resources to get the pamphlet project off of the ground are particularly welcomed.
