The Gilder Lehrman Institute is pleased to announce the launch of HISTORY NOW, an exciting new online journal for history teachers and students, now available on the Web at www.historynow.org.
HISTORY NOW features articles by noted historians as well as lesson plans, links to related websites, bibliographies, and many other resources. In each issue, the editors will bring together historians, master teachers and archivists to comment on a single historical theme.
Don't miss the first issue of HISTORY NOW, which tackles a topic at the forefront of current debate: Elections. In this issue, Joanne Freeman discusses the contested election of 1800, Liette Gidlow looks at television's effect on the 1960 Kennedy-Nixon debates, Steven Mintz examines the history of voting rights, and Ted Widmer reflects on the electoral process from the perspective of Muslim exchange students.
Visit www.historynow.org to comment on our articles, ask questions of our staff, and let us know what you think about our journal.
