Hardback for selected pieces from the webzine JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION!

I am delighted to have 2 pieces in the 3 dozen essays chosen from the webzine to be bound together in an old-fashioned book! One is the essay on what is commonly known as the "Tryon Resolves" and the other is "Fanning Outfoxes Marion." What fun! The first one began from seeing how many of my uncles and cousins were signers of the "Association"--when signing meaning that they put their fortunes and lives on the line.

Journal of the American Revolution: Annual Volume 2015 is available for pre-ordering!

annualvol2015cover2The articles have been selected, the cover has been designed and the book is now in the copyediting phase. This collector’s hardcover edition publishes in late May 2015 and is available for pre-ordering now at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indigo, IndieBound and other fine bookstores worldwide. While the Journal of the American Revolution is published on the web, affording broad access and a measure of interactivity with readers, there is a permanence and prominence to a printed volume that the web cannot match. We’re advancing the study of history, after all, so there’s something to be said about producing a tangible, archivable object that blends modern research and perspectives with traditional presentation. What you’ll find in the 2015 volume is sure to delight and, most important, offer new perspectives on many aspects of the people, politics, events, and engagements of the American Revolution. Many thanks to our publisher Westholme Publishing for being such a great partner on this project! We’re thrilled with the book and know our readers will be, too!
