The eighth straight uniform volume of selected articles from the previous calendar year is now available. The articles in the Journal of the American Revolution Annual Volume 2022 range from the Constitutional debate over the electoral college and impeachment procedures and the numerical strength of Washington’s army during the Philadelphia campaign to inoculation of smallpox, the King of Sweden, the Cherokee-American War, and the Varick transcripts. You can see the entire contents here.
Noting that the online content of the Journal of the American Revolution often resonates with recent events in the United States and around the world, editor Don N. Hagist, writes in his introduction to this volume: “The point is not to arrive at a simple conclusion, such as ‘history repeats itself,’ but to recognize that knowledge of historical events is crucial in keeping current events in perspective. The questions of today may have been asked before. The institutions and mores of today came about through debate, conflict, compromise, and reason. The severity of today’s events has been seen before. History helps us learn from the past in order to face the present in a rationale, informed manner.”
That is an essential part of this journal’s mission and we remain grateful to our readers and contributors for this distinguished forum we call JAR.
The new annual volume can be purchased from the publisher, Amazon, or wherever you get books.
