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

After an extremely busy and exciting year, Journal of the American Revolution is taking a short vacation to tackle a few time sensitive projects. Look for us again on January 4, 2016. We’ll have news to share about Annual Volume 2016 and our forthcoming book series. Plus, we’ll be announcing the winner of the 2015 Book of the Year Award.  While we’re away, we have two important assignments for our readers and writers:

  1. If you haven’t already, please take 11 seconds to “like” our Facebook page and sign up for our newsletter. You’ll receive America’s most important history delivered to your inbox once a month. No spam, we promise. Unsubscribe anytime.
  2. If you are an exceptional researcher/writer and interested in contributing (again or for the first time) to the hottest history magazine in America, please contact us today. Or if you know an aspiring nonfiction author, please tell him/her about us. We boast an expedited peer review process, frequently going from pitch to publication in less than four weeks, and the exciting ability to build large, loyal readerships among our 1 million annual readers (1.1 million unique readers in 2015). Also unique among online magazines, Journal of the American Revolution produces an annual hardcover collection of its most resourceful articles as well as a nonfiction book series imprint with acclaimed nonfiction publisher Westholme Publishing. The month of December is a great time to research, write and submit your works for publication in 2016 and consideration for our 2017 volume.

Journal of the American Revolution will be back with more great articles on January 4, 2015. Until then, here are some great reads:
