Event Details

Journal of the American Revolution is hosting its second RevWar Schmoozer in Boston. A public happy hour will be held Friday, May 8, upstairs at The Point (147 Hanover St.) from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. The space is reserved exclusively for this shindig and no secret password is required at the door. Join fellow historians and history buffs for a fun, casual evening of sipping (cash bar), schmoozing (networking) and storytelling (well cited, of course). Historians, authors, museum pros, publishers, literary agents, tour guides, professors, students, enthusiasts and Trekkies are all welcome!

On the following day—Saturday, May 9—Journal of the American Revolution editors and some friends are planning a free group tour and discussion of the brand new Revolutionary War map exhibit at the Norman B. Leventhal Map Center in Boston Public Library. The exhibit, titled “We are One: Mapping America’s Road from Revolution to Independence,” is a stunning exhibition of cartographic and geographic treasures. Only 40 tickets are available.

***Please be sure to cancel your reservation if you're unable to attend after registration, so another lucky individual can attend in your absense. Thank you!

Journal of the American Revolution

Journal of the American Revolution is the go-to source for information about the American Revolution and Founding. Appealing to both scholars and non-academics, the journal features meticulous, groundbreaking research and well-written narrative from scores of expert writers. “Smart and accessible…If you have a serious interest in the American Revolution, but find the scholarly journals a bit stuffy, Journal of the American Revolution is for you,” wrote John Fea, Chair of History Deptartment at Messiah College. The journal and its authors have been featured by Slate, TIME, MSNBC, Smithsonian, National Review, AHA Today, Washington Post, Mount Vernon, and more.

Journal of the American Revolution also produces an annual hardcover volume that gives prominence and permanence to our authors' most resourceful articles. Sean Stevenson reviewed the first volume for Armchair General Magazine and had this to say: "Wow! I couldn’t put this down, read it in one five-hour sitting. Me. A guy who finds mistakes in Revolutionary War books that won the Pulitzer Prize. Who can tell you whether or not Ethan Allen got a smallpox inoculation. Who has memorized the opening lines of Paine’s The Crisis. And I found more information in this one volume than I have in the last half-dozen books on the Revolutionary War that I read.”

And in 2015, the Journal of the American Revolution announced a new book series with Westholme Publishing.
