A scarce Revolutionary War almanac; NAIP locates a copy at AAS and three in Connecticut. It expresses appropriate patriotic sentiments, and refers to the colonists as 'Americans' fighting for the freedom of their "bleeding country." "AMERICANS! for freedom firmly join/ unite your councils, and your force combine;/ Disarm oppression- prune ambition's wings,/ and stifle Tories, e'er they dart their stings."
