HNN Will Be Off for the Week

Thanksgiving greetings to the HNN community! I'm personally thankful to have spent most of 2020 connecting with this community of writers and readers and promoting the value of history in the public square. 

HNN will be observing the holiday by taking the week off. New op eds will return on December 6, and history-related news and opinion from around the web will be reposted starting on November 30. Newsletters for email subscribers will return on December 2

Also, HNN's annual fund drive will begin after Thanksgiving. The cajoling, badgering and hectoring will commence then. For now, I wish all of you a restful and safe holiday.
