March was a very exciting month for Journal of the American Revolution (JAR). We welcomed Andrew O’Shaughnessy and Jerome Palliser as new contributors, and we hosted another group interview series with historians sounding off on the following questions:
- What is the most underrated battle?
- What is the most overrated battle?
- How would you describe the American Revolution in one tweet (140 characters)?
- What is your favorite quote by a Revolutionary?
- What one remaining mystery of the Revolution do you most want solved?
If you enjoyed our group interview series, be sure to check out our previous two (group interview 2 and group interview 1).
Also in March, Smithsonian.com featured the JAR article about George Washington’s love of ice cream, which was authored by John L. Smith, Jr.
Several JAR editors and writers converged in Williamsburg, Virginia, for the 3rd Annual Conference on the American Revolution, a three-day event hosted by America’s History, LLC (see photos). The conference doubled its attendance over the previous year thanks in large part to an advertisement the organizer’s ran on JAR. Click here for more information about JAR advertising.
Lastly, are you looking forward to the new “Turn” TV series on AMC? If so, you’ll definitely want to read JAR next week. AMC gave JAR early access to the first three episodes and we’ll be publishing our review, titled “Everything Historians Need to Know About AMC’s ‘Turn,'” next week. Stay tuned!
