In this week’s Dispatches, host Brady Crytzer interviews JAR contributor Bob Ruppert about his research and articles on Catharine Macaulay, the pioneering woman historian who wrote the first history of England from a Whig, or Republican, perspective. Bob explains the importance of Macaulay as a literary figure, how she became involved in the Whig cause, her support of the American rebellion from abroad, and her remarkable correspondence with John and Abigail Adams, Mercy Otis Warren, and George Washington.
As your host says, “Sit back, relax, and enjoy the interview. . . .”
