The year is whichever year in the American Revolution you want, and the place is the Colonies on the new continent of America. War has come with England. What will the year bring? This is the place for characters to explore what it was like to live during those tumultuous years. While it will be mainly set in the colonies, it can also be expanded to include all the Americas and Europe. So the time is whichever year, (just indicate your year in the title).

"What sort of day was it? A day like all days, filled with those events that alter and illuminate our times... and you were there."*

*Said with great gravity by Walter Cronkite, a newscaster, after he interviewed real and mythological people from the ancient past for children's educational films.

How Time Works in Early American Narratives

Generally, if you want, the month and the day of the month in real life can determine the month and day of the month in our novel. However, even then, time can always be fluid when needed, especially around Christmas and New Year's.

You can write in any year during the Revolutionary War and Early American Period. You can also do alternate history if you want.

Several of our members have written timelines of various years, both in Early American Narratives and in Symposia. Thank you! These may be helpful, and if I missed anyone’s let me know:
