Extra! Extra! The RevWar Daily

The newspaper is not dead. It's L.I.! Paper.li, that is.

Allow me to introduce The RevWar Daily, a compendium of Revolutionary War news, stories, trivia, personas and rich media based on the tweets by the good folks on my RevWar twitter list. The paper culls the various posts of the day and then re-organizes them in newspaper style format, featuring headlines and other sections like Education, Arts & Entertainment, Politics, Living and Media.

If you have a Twitter profile that focuses on the American Revolution, such as events, people, landmarks, etc., leave a comment with your Twitter handle or drop me a tweet @peterfrancisco. We are seeking contributors, including chapters of Sons of the American Revolution and Daughters of the American Revolution!
