The #RevWar Revolutionary War Book Club

I am now a co-moderator of the Revolutionary War Book Club on Goodreads. Started last week by the Twitter #RevWar community, the group features discussion and review of books about the American Revolutionary War. In addition, we run member polls to choose books as a group and discuss other topics related to the Revolutionary War outside of what we're currently reading.

The RevWar Revolutionary War Book Club on Goodreads

We voted on our first read last week, which is The Road to Guilford Courthouse: The American Revolution in the Carolinas by John Buchanan. I'm looking forward to reading more about this battle that Peter Francisco participated in.

It's been great connecting with others who are also interested in the period that defined our great nation. Everyone is encouraged to join. You are not obligated to read the selected books, but do let us know what interests you and what types of RevWar books you like to read or have read. If you have authored any books or articles, be sure to let us know and leave a link!
