Becoming America:


The creation of a new nation

In July 2018, RR Auction will feature items that chronicle America’s journey to independence via the Revolutionary War.

George Washington Revolutionary War battle painting RR Auction

The United States of America was once a handful of colonies in a new land. Yearning to break free of the restraints of Mother England, they organized and began the tumultuous, dangerous and daunting Revolutionary War, which lasted Apr. 19, 1775 – Sept. 3, 1783.

We’re seeking your consignments relating to that historical period of U.S. history: Signed documents, manuscripts, maps, weaponry, personal items and clothing, ephemera of all kinds. Anything that tells the story of America’s earliest years, from 13 colonies, to the battles, to the Founding Fathers, to the the new republic.

Some examples of prices achieved in previous auctions for U.S. history items include:

  • Dr. John Warren’s incredible Revolutionary War amputation kits: $104,147
  • Signed letter by Benjamin Franklin: $39,392
  • Paul Revere signed letter: $31,250
  • Muster roll carried across the Delaware River with Washington and his troops: $12,148

Do you have historical collectibles from witnesses of “the shot heard ‘round the world”? Contact us.
