The Coming of Correspondence

by Mrs. McCluney

Throughout the 1760s and 1770s, Americans engage in colonial politics in a variety of ways. Newspaper reports, pamphlets and flyers are the main means of communication with the people so that they know what is going on in local town meetings, colonial legislatures, and Parliament. This newspaper outlines the birth of the Committee of Correspondence on November 2 1772 and its importance then and now.
