  • I attended the American Revolution conference in Williamsburg this weekend. Very pleased to observe that the JAR authors not only held their own among a mostly academic/PHD crowd, but Todd Braisted and J L Bell were definitely two of the best and most entertaining speakers. Congrats to both men for a job well done. And, not to beat a point already made but, J L Bell is a natural storyteller. Never hesitate to give these guys an audience. ☺

  • Like Wayne, I also attended America’s History LLC’s American Revolution Conference in Williamsburg and it lived up the hype and then some. Bruce, Lynne and company did an outstanding job again. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, it did. I want to thank them all for putting on this top quality Rev War program.

    All of the presenters did an excellent job, they all were engaging and interesting, leaving you wanting to hear more, or what I did, bought their books. JAR authors JL Bell and Todd Braisted were outstanding. They both presented interesting topics, were well prepared, spoke brilliantly and they know their stuff. That is why I am proud to have them speak along with James Kirby Martin, Bruce Venter, Ed Lengel, and others at our Conference on the American Revolution in the Mohawk Valley this June!
