The REMEMBRANCER, for the year 1778 and part of 1779, containing much material on the American Revolution. Almon, a British publisher, was the primary source for British publications concerning American political and military affairs throughout the Revolution. In this periodical, the first British reference on affairs in America, he gathered British, American, and Continental information about American events. Of the complete set, Church writes, "A veritable mine of information, containing every authentic paper relative to the American Revolution, whether published in England or in America, by the British Ministry or the American Congress, and is even to-day the original authority from which much of our information is based."
