Well, this is a small break from the “Mattson Family Mini-Series” that has been on the Ascending the Stairs blog channel for the last few months.
I encourage you to check out two websites that highlight the history of the American Revolution:
1) Boston 1775 – This blog had me giggling on Wednesday reading the announcement for a new comic series called “Action Presidents”. J.L. Ball often writes about little known events and characters in the Revolutionary period, book reviews and events in Massachusetts that focus on the American Revolution. I am always learning something new.
2) Journal of the American Revolution – Okay, I know I am a Revolutionary War nerd…but really can’t you get excited about articles with titles like “Top Ten Marriages Gone Bad”, “Defiant Brides”, “A Colonial New Orleans Meal” and “Austin Dabney: Georgia’s Revolutionary African American Hero”?
