You all know by now that the August Issue – aka the Civil War issue – has hit the web to great fanfare. Well, the September issue is set to go and is looking just incredible. Here’s a little teaser. What can the cancelled checks of Henry Clay Folger, the president of Standard Oil and avid collector of Shakespeare, tell us about the man and his times? Well…you can find out next month. How about the Atomic Energy Commission and nuclear testing in the 1950s? There might be more to the story than you think. But again, you’ll have to wait until next month. And you know what else? The issue will feature some great material on World War II, including a very powerful collection of letters written by a Navy aviator who fought at the Battle of Midway and a piece on WWII reenacting discussing issues such as ideological motivations and educational benefits. But like I said…next month.
