Journal of the American Revolution is the leading source of knowledge about the American Revolution and Founding Era. We feature smart, groundbreaking research and well-written narratives from expert writers. Our work has been featured by the New York Times, TIME magazine, History Channel, Discovery Channel, Smithsonian, Mental Floss, NPR, and more. Journal of the American Revolution also produces annual hardcover volumes, a branded book series, and the podcast, Dispatches

Following such a cold and snowy winter, Journal of the American Revolution used the beginning of summer as a good excuse to temporarily slow things down. While articles were published less frequently for a few weeks, we still welcomed four new writers: Nancy K. Loane, John Beakes, Mary V. Thompson and Richard F. Welch. Starting this week, our tempo will pick up again with exciting new contributions from Wayne Lynch, Michael Schellhammer, Lars D. H. Hedbor, Jim Piecuch, Robert Scott Davis and Hugh T. Harrington. Plus, the week of July 7-11 is reserved for our fourth group interview. We have another round of fun, thought-provoking questions and answers to share with our readers. Stay tuned for an action-packed July, but first…
