Abstract:

Before the events of the American Revolution became the history and foundation of the United States, they were littered among the news of the day for those in colonial America. Reading local newspapers such as the Boston Gazette and Pennsylvania Journal, colonists received new information every week on the growing conflict with Great Britain. The American newspapers of the eighteenth century fanned the flames of rebellion, igniting the ideas of patriotism and liberty among ordinary colonists who had never before been so strongly united. This book presents a collection of primary sources detailing what it was like to experience a revolution as it happened. These essential propaganda tools motivated farmers and shopkeepers to take up arms against the most powerful empire in the world. Discover Patriot and Loyalist eyewitness accounts from newspapers printed on both sides of the Atlantic, and experience the news of the Revolution with the same immediacy and uncertainty as the colonists did.
