Those of you who read this blog regularly know that I’ve decided to expand the scope of my work to include the American Revolution. I firmly believe that change–challenging oneself–is a good thing. It’s good to take on a new challenge and shake things up.

Along the way, I discovered a magazine focused on the Revolutionary War called Patriots of the American Revolution, which is published about an hour from here. I made contact with the publishers and have established a relationship with them. Along the way, we reached an agreement whereby I have now been appointed the review editor for the magazine. Effective now, I am in charge of book and media reviews for the magazine, and I will also be contributing content. Just a couple of days ago, I submitted my first article, on the May 1780 Battle of Waxhaws, which will be the feature article in May/June issue of the magazine.

I enjoy working with the publishers, and I have enjoyed introducing them to some of the Revolutionary War students that I know. It’s going to be an interesting experience and will also be a good way for me to continue to learn more about the American Revolution.

I’ve added a permanent link to the magazine in the links to the right.

    ERIC : congratulations on this. And I’m very glad to see a magazine devoted to the American Revolution. I don’t recall seeing anything quite like it until now.

    I had not heard of this publication and intend to subscribe – especially.now that I know they’ve upgraded their roster (LOL).This is something to look forward to while the Camden project takes root (and I continue to push for Brandywine next, of course…)

    I’m very excited that you’ve decided to write about the revolution. I’ve been an amateur civil war historian for years, and only recently have gotten into the revolution. You are a GREAT writer and I can’t wait for your book on Camden. Good luck!
