The Gilder Lehrman Institute is pleased to present the third issue of HISTORY NOW, an exciting new online journal for history teachers and students, now available on the Web at the web address provided below.
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 bring together historians, master teachers, and archivists to comment on a single historical theme.
Don't miss the current issue of HISTORY NOW, which examines the history of immigration to the United States. Ira Berlin takes a look at the transatlantic slave trade, Phillip Lopate explores the stories told through immigrant fiction, Virginia Sānchez Korrol examines the long history of Hispanic Caribbean immigration, and Thomas Kessner explains why immigration is important to the American character. In addition, our interactive feature examines several landmark legal cases that address the critical questions: who can claim American citizenship and who, at times in our history, has been denied that opportunity.
