Dear JAR Community,
When Todd Andrlik approached me about taking the helm of the Journal of the American Revolution I was honored. Todd was confident that his creation would be in the hands of someone who shares his passion and commitment to an area of history that is important to all of us. I have worked with Todd and Don N. Hagist for the past three years developing the annual volumes and the branded book series, and have had the pleasure of working with other contributors on book projects. I look forward to working with our contributors—both new and long-standing—and continuing to expand the scope and importance of the journal, recognized for its active, inquisitive, and up-to-date engagement with history. Coming up in the next few weeks we have excellent articles from Gene Procknow, Joshua Shepherd, Bob Ruppert, and other regular contributors, as well as noteworthy articles from our many new contributors, including Michael Wood, Andrew Zellers-Frederick, and Cameron Boutin.
I am pleased to announce that Don Hagist will now be the Managing Editor of the journal, along with editors J. L. Bell, Jim Piecuch, and Ray Raphael.
Those who have met me at conferences know that I am quite accessible, so please do not hesitate to reach out to me. Thank you, and I look forward to a great New Year for the journal!
Your most obed.t humble serv.t,
