A Guide to the American Revolution, 1763-1783

The John Adams miniseries on HBO has renewed my interest in the American Revolution. I have been searching the Web for sites to read and have got out some of my old books like 1776 by David McCullough. One site I found this morning is A Guide to the American Revolution, 1763-1783. It is from the Library of Congress.

Here is the description of the site:

The digital collections of the Library of Congress contain a wide variety of material associated with the American Revolution, including manuscripts, broadsides, government documents, books, and maps. This guide compiles links to digital materials related to the American Revolution that are available throughout the Library of Congress Web site. In addition, it provides links to external Web sites focusing on the American Revolution and a bibliography containing selections for both general and younger readers.

This is a well done site and it is easy to find information on the activities of some future American Presidents by browsing. Take a look and you probably will find something interesting.
