Our cover image comes from John Trumball's dramatic 1786 painting, The Death of General Warren at the Battle of Bunker's Hill, 17 June, 1775. Trumball, of course, was one of the most prolific painters of the Revolutionary War, in which he himself served. 

This special issue wouldn't have been possible without the help of Matthew Palatnik, our Editorial Assistant. Matthew is a promising young historian and three-time winner of the National History Day competition.

We hope you enjoy our work.
