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 February, we welcomed two new writers, Matthew Wigler and Douglas J. Gladstone, and announced our online magazine’s 2017 advertising rates. If you missed it, we also recently launched pre-orders of our 2017 annual hardcover edition and hosted our ninth group interview. Last call for one of the biggest American Revolution conferences of the year. If you’re free the weekend of March 24 and looking for something Revolutionary to do, please check out the 6th Annual Conference of the American Revolution.
