The American Revolution: As Described by British Writers and The Morning Chronicle and London Advertiser


This book offers an important look at the American Revolution through British newspaper abstracts covering the last few years of the war. The abstracts, from January 1780 through September 1782, vary in content and include such things as extracts from letters written by George Washington and John Hancock, and Lord Cornwallis and Sir Henry Clinton; correspondents' observations on America; proclamations issued by Lafayette, Sir Henry Clinton, Lord Cornwallis, and General Benedict Arnold; debates and discussions held in the House of Commons and House of Lords; dispatches on the war at sea; articles on historical wartime events; and more.
