Time for the annual reminder that reference materials make great gifts.
Know someone who could benefit from having all of Thomas Simes' books?
How 'bout "History Written with a Pick and Shovel" plus the much rarer companion volume "Relics of the American Revolution"; or several period military dictionaries, or a nice collection of texts on cavalry and horsemanship?
All of these things are available on CD-ROM from http://revolutionaryimprints
in computer-friendly, searchable PDF format. Sure, some of the documents can be obtained from other sources, but good luck trying to find all of them, never mind afford them.
Also a few good books including my new one, "British Soldiers, American War."
Check it out.
