Advertisements had a significant influence on the people of colonial America, just as they do today. The Adverts 250 Project allows individuals to have a glimpse into the world of eighteenth-century advertising: each day, the project posts an advertisement that appeared in a publication exactly 250 years ago to the date. These advertisements are selected by history students at Assumption College in Worcester, Massachusetts and are culled from three online archives: Accessible Archives, Colonial Williamsburg's Digital Library, and Readex's America's Historical Newspapers. Many of these advertisements illustrate the horrors of slavery - the project also hosts a Slavery Adverts 250 Twitter account dedicated to sharing slave advertisements. Other featured advertisements provide insight into eighteenth-century reading habits and culture. One advertisement, published on January 15, 1768, in the New-Hampshire Gazette, announces the release of "Mein and Fleeming's REGISTER FOR NEW ENGLALD [sic] AND NOVA SCOTIA, With all the BRITISH LISTS, AND AN Almanack for 1768."
