The next several weeks will be a short break from the usual content featured at Journal of the American Revolution, so we wanted to take this opportunity to give you a preview of what’s planned.
Next week (June 8-12) will be our sixth group interview. Five days of Q&A with multiple historians. Spoiler alert: The questions relate to artifacts, learned lessons, listening, global influences and cities. And our participating experts this time around include John Ferling, James Kirby Martin, Jim Piecuch, Thomas Fleming, Ray Raphael, Jack Kelly, John L. Smith, Jr., Kim Burdick, Gary Shattuck, J. L. Bell, Gene Procknow, Steven Paul Mark, Christian M. McBurney and Daniel J. Tortora. All readers are encouraged to chime in with their opinions and answers, so be sure to check in each day next week and leave your comments.
Following the group interview, the balance of June will be dedicated to Revolution-era primary sources. The editors are compiling several fascinating, rarely-seen documents that will give readers a chance to more intimately engage with the history of our nation’s founding.
Then, after Independence Day, we will resume our traditional editorial coverage with scores of new articles from our contributors.
Cheers to summer breezes, good books, long road trips and lemonade stands!
