Journal of the American Revolution (#allthingsliberty) continues to publish a flurry of exciting articles and, in June, we welcomed six new contributors — Robert M. Dunkerly, Daniel Tortora, Elizabeth M. Covart, Cathryn J. Prince, Michael Barbieri and Jeff Dacus. In June, we also shared the exciting news that a commemorative **print** edition of Journal of the American Revolution is in the works. We’ve joined forces with Ertel Publishing, the former publisher of American Revolution magazine, to produce a limited full-color, hard-cover edition that will be available for sale just in time for the holidays (November). The special volume will feature our greatest hits material from numerous historians and experts PLUS a selection of exclusive content. Hundreds of stunning images will accompany the articles, including some that will be available in print for the first time ever!
