REVOLUTIONARY WAR.] [NEWSPAPERS.] A group of eight Revolutionary War and pre-Revolutionary War era newspapers. -- The Boston Chronicle , 4 April – 11 April 1768. Protest against the Townshend Duties and Declaratory Act. -- The New York Journal, or the General Advertiser , 5 March 1772. General news (inoculation, runaway servant notices, foreign dispatches). -- The Pennsylvania Gazette , 24 November 1773. Reporting on the protests and resolutions issued in Boston, under John Hancock’s leadership, against the Tea Tax. -- Supplement to the Pennsylvania Ledger , 13 May 1775. American protests and petitions to the British King in response to the Intolerable Acts. -- New England Chronicle or the Essex Gazette , 31 August – 7 September 1775. The Continental Congress’s response to Parliament: “That the colonies of America are intitled to the sole and exclusive privilege of giving and granting their own money.” But the British are wrong to present the dispute as solely pertaining to “the mede of levying taxes.” By claiming the right to tax the Americans in any circumstance whatsoever, the British “claim a right to alter our charters and established laws and leave us without any security for our lives or liberties.” -- The Lady’s Magazine , July 1776. Contains a notice (p.90) about the early, American Revolutionary flag: “The colours of the American fleet were striped under the Union with thirteen strokes called the Thirteen United Colonies, and their standard a rattle snake, motto, ‘Don’t Tread Upon Me.’” -- The South Carolina and American General Gazette , 17 April 1777. Hole in center columns with loss of text. War news from New York, a defiant Address by Abraham Ten Broeck, president of the Convention of the State of New York. “We do not fight for a few acres of land, but for freedom.” The Charlestown paper also includes several notices of slave auctions and runaway slaves. -- The Boston Gazette and the Country Journal , 5 November 1781. Capt. Pierce’s “Dispatches from the General [Greene] to his Excellency the President of the Congress.” Dramatic accounts of key battles in the Southern theater.
