The American Historian

I just received my copy of the August 2014 issue of The American Historian, the new publication of the Organization of the American Historians.  It is loaded with a lot of great stuff.  For example:

  • OAH president Patty Limerick discusses the difference between the New Yorker and The American Historian
  • Heather Cox Richardson has a piece on finding time to blog
  • Andrew Huebner wants us to write history with emotion.
  • Joanne Pope Melish critiques the web series Ask a Slave
And there is a lot of there is a lot of other great stuff.  Check it out.

BTW--the cover of my issue has a different cover.  It has a picture of an African-American soldier.
