Newspaper Datelines of the American Revolution, Volume 4: November 1, 1776 to January 30, 1777


In his final book, the late Mr. Lucier takes readers through the final months of the key year, 1776, to the end of January 1777. Much is happening during this time as Washington, Howe, Gates, Clinton, Lee, and Putnam scheme battle plans; British and American troops maneuver for position and struggle for victory; German auxiliary troops support the British efforts; the Empress of Russia considers siding with the British and the colonists hope to convince France to join the American side; colonial agitators publish correspondence in American newspapers to rouse local support; loyalists are identified; privateers take goodly prizes; Robert Rogers, once the darling of the French and Indian Wars, is now reviled; and some soldiers desert their units. Step back into time with a read through these abstracts of old newspapers and glimpse the world the American colonists lived in, and the anxieties and triumphs they experienced.
