Overview

This collection of pre-Revolutionary era diaries provides a rich and authentic portrait of incidents, manners, customs, and details of life in pre-Revolutionary America. The records of farmers and businessmen are to be found here, as well as those of clergymen, soldiers, students, and physicians. The inclusive nature of this project will make it of interest to the general reader as well as to students and scholars of various disciplines, and to an even greater variety of topical researchers--from Indians and industry to epidemics and earthquakes.

Titles from the Massachusetts Historical Society Collections may be purchased by individual reel.
