We believe that the Continental Correspondent was compiled from authentic newspapers of the period, newly typeset, and issued here for the Bicentennial to give readers information on what was contained in newspapers during the nearly one year from April, 1775 to March, 1776. It was issued as individual numbers - there is subscription information at the bottom of the verso of each sheet - and here bound for a college library.

News from major cities of the American colonies, as well as from London and some European cities. The dramatic build-up to the American Revolution.
