|Links to the Virginia Gazette|
|The Colonial Williamsburg
graciously provided on-line editions of the original Virginia Gazette, complete with
index. This is a terrific resource for researchers of colonial
life and issues. Many of their articles are simple repostings from
newpapers located elsewhere in the colonies, so we are now able to
access some articles relevant to the Gaspee Affair by this second-hand
source. The following links are to the Virginia Gazette are of interest
and the information is not provided elsewhere on the Gaspee Virtual
Archives. The main index for the Virginia Gazette is at: http://research.history.org/DigitalLibrary/BrowseVG.cfm.
The text of the newspaper is
too small and erratic to easily be scanned in, and we're far too lazy
to do it by hand, but if you do it, please send us a copy! Thanks.
