“This, a most valuable record and chronicle of historical and political events for over a hundred years contains accurate accounts of the Revolutionary War, as well as the revolutions in South American, the Second War with Great Britain, and many other American subjects.” ­– Sabin, 1614.

 

Through the end of the 18th-century, “The Annual Register” became the most respected journal in print. The periodical was a reference work that contained major events from each year, focusing on economics, politics, arts, trends, and world developments. Many leading historians of the American Revolutionary period, including David Ramsay, James Murray, and William Gordon “borrowed heavily from the Annual Register” (Gephart 1016, 2565).

 

In addition to important Revolutionary War events, this tome covers:

  • Lists of fleets in the war
  • Admiral Keppel’s letter claiming victory
  • Effects of the ‘American War’ with regard to commerce in Great Britain
  • The poor treatment of American prisoners of war in England
    • “Great complaints were about this time circulated, that the American prisoners in this country, who amounted to several hundreds, were treated with a degree of rigour which fell little short of cruelty.” p. [78]
  • French political policies in Canada
