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

There are a lot of big numbers that demonstrate our exciting growth since publishing our first article in 2013.

  • Four hardcover book series books published  (and one forthcoming)

And now, with today’s post, we can claim more than 1,000 articles published. Thank you to all our writers and readers who have made Journal of the American Revolution the definitive source of knowledge about our nation’s founding. We look forward to publishing many more articles in the future, but will be taking a summer holiday first. Please enjoy our archives until we will return to our regular programming the week of August 21.
