American History Magazine

The Minuteman's review of American History magazine. Learn about this key history magazine and order your subscription here.

If you like learning about the Revolutionary War, I would like to recommend American History magazine to you. I'm sure you'll love it like I do. American History is published by the Weider History Group, along with a group of other history magazines such as Wild West magazine, World War II magazine and Civil War Times magazine.

American History doesn't focus solely on the American Revolution, but generally every issue has several good stories on the Revolution. Each issue has five or six feature articles, as well as a variety of smaller special interest stories. Recent feature articles have included one about the history of Mount Vernon, the home George Washington built on the banks of the Potomac, another about Mercy Otis Warren, who was called "The Conscience of the Revolution," whose fiery poems and plays helped stoke anti-British sentiment in colonial America, another about the restoration of "Montpelier," the home of James and Dolley Madison and yet another about the role of pirates in the American Revolution. Other non-Revolutionary War feature articles have included stories about Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West, the excavations at Jamestown and the history of Yankee Stadium.

There are several special sections in each issue of American History as well. There is a section called "Publick Occurrences" that relates current events that have a connection to American history. For example, one recent article in this section covered the moving and renovation of a house built and owned by Alexander Hamilton in New York City. Another article discussed the recent renovation of the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History and the new home of the American flag that was hanging over Fort McHenry in Baltimore Harbor during the War of 1812. This is the flag that Francis Scott Key was watching as he penned the Star Spangled Banner from a British ship on which he was held captive. Other articles have covered the finding of the HMS Ontario, a British warship sunk during the Revolution, the scientific analysis of some guns owned by James Madison and James Monroe that were allegedly made from an Argentinian meteorite and the finding of several World War II MIA's whose airplanes crashed in the Himalayas.

Another American History magazine section is called "Dialogue." In this section, the author of a recent American History book is interviewed and asked questions about his or her book.

The "Deconstructed" section of American History magazine takes a closer look at a famous American historical event, person or landmark. Recent articles in this section have included an interesting look at Charles Willson Peale, known as the "Artist of the Revolution," who made famous portraits of many Revolutionary War figures and another article featuring an in depth look at the history and construction of New York's Brooklyn Bridge.

Other sections of American History magazine include "Precedents," which looks at historical trends that reflect on current issues, "Bloodlines," which looks at the descendants of American historical figures and "Challenge," which is a fun set of questions and answers about American historical events.

In addition, there are lots of reviews of current books, movies and TV shows about American history, as well as Letters to the Editor and advertisements for related things, such as travel information to Revolutionary War Sites, American historical figurines and artifacts, etc.
