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

In July, we hosted our eighth group interview series with several experts weighing in on a variety of questions. We also welcomed our 128th contributor, James E. Richmond, and unveiled several new t-shirt designs in our JAR shop. Our American Apparel tees are the smoothest and softest t-shirts you’ll ever wear. Made of fine jersey, they are a durable, vintage feel and known for their premium quality, as well as their ability to stand up to a washing machine (will maintain size and color after many washes). Plus, all our shirts are made in the USA.

Have you read either of our first two JAR series books by Todd W. Braisted or J. L. Bell? If so, we’d love to know your thoughts so please consider leaving a review on their Amazon sales pages (Grand Forage 1778 and The Road to Concord). Your book reviews and feedback will help us in two important ways: 1) It gives us valuable reader perspective to improve and select future titles in the series, and 2) It demonstrates the broad reader impact of the series to our publisher and helps convince them to publish more microhistories with Journal of the American Revolution in the future.

Lastly, we have a fascinating and action-packed pipeline of content planned for August, so stay tuned.
