From 1774 until mid-1777, Nicholas Cresswell, a young English farmer bent on starting a new life in northwestern Virginia, kept a journal that serves as a distinctive window into the turbulent politics of the American Revolution. This modern edition is unexpurgated and fully annotated with an introduction that provides a detailed historical context for the work.
Harold B. Gill Jr. is consulting editor of the Colonial Williamsburg Journal. George M. Curtis III is professor of American history at Hanover College.
