Historic Sources on the American Revolution

It isn’t often that a library digitizes an entire collection.  Part of the reason that Princeton University could do it with the Sid Lapidus ’59 Collection on Liberty and the American Revolution is that the collection contains 179 items — not inconsequential but not enormous either.

The collection consists of books, pamphlets, images and a map and includes Thomas Jefferson’s Notes on the State of Virginia, Thomas Paines’ Rights of Man, The Age of Reason and Common Sense, and Alexander Hamilton’s The Federalist. Skim the collection, search by format, author, topic or language.
