Mary Gould Almy's Journal 1778


As a rare account by a woman and a Loyalist during the French and Patriot attack on British forces at Newport in September 1778, Mrs. Almy's account provides valuable insights into a civilian woman's reactions to the war and to the situation in Newport. The journal covers the period between July 29 and August 24 in 1778.
