Each spring for the past nine years we have published the Journal of the American Revolution Annual volume. Each book represents those articles selected by JAR’s editorial staff that best represent the in-depth and cutting edge original research that is the journal’s hallmark. This year’s volume is no exception and contains articles ranging from a demographic analysis of the British soldiers who marched to Concord in April 1775 and the story of Minute Man Ned Streater to Russia’s armed neutrality and the first partisan application of the Electoral College.
Our annual volume is the only way to enjoy these fascinating and disparate articles together. As many readers have commented, the annual volumes are a pleasure to dip into or read straight through. More importantly, the volumes together form a great reference for anyone interested in studying the conflict from its origins to its aftermath. All articles published by JAR are based on primary sources, so readers can feel confident about the scholarship as well as find primary-source leads for further research.
You can order a copy directly from the publisher, on Amazon (an associates partner with JAR), or wherever books are sold.
The Fort Plain Museum has a section dedicated to the Journal of the American Revolution selling both the JAR Annual Volumes and the JAR Book Series. Check them out at https://fortplainmuseum.square.site/shop/journal-american-revolution/9
