America and Great Britain, Diplomatic Relations 1775-1815
Until the end of May, we have trial access to ‘America and Great Britain, Diplomatic Relations 1775-1815’. Published via Cambridge Archive Editions, ‘America and Great Britain, Diplomatic Relations 1775-1815’ is a digitised collection of British diplomatic primary source material, charting the emergence of an independent United States.
The nine volume collection consists of c.8,000 pages of official diplomatic correspondence between America and Britain. The correspondences are made up of an extensive collection of letters, despatches and proclamations from high-ranking British and American politicians, including Benjamin Franklin, George Washington and King George III. Together these correspondences form a narrative which not only captures major historical events from a contemporary viewpoint, but also provides a uniquely personal insight into the creators of modern America.
The collection also provides an insight into European politics during this period, as America increasingly became the subject if political intrigue for Britain and France, whose hostilities dominated Europe at the time. This looks at conflicts between America, France and Britain arising over trade, defence and diplomacy.
