The Journal of American History


Classic JAH Article Wins Online Tournament

On April 8, 2016 the early American history blog The Junto announced the winner of its March Madness tournament to determine the best early American history article. With over 1,000 votes cast throughout the tournament, Edmund Morgan's June 1972 Journal of American History article "Slavery and Freedom: The American Paradox" triumphed. In second place was another JAH article by Jill Lepore, "Historians Who Love Too Much."

Over at the JAH and OAH blog Process, historian Benjamin Carp reflects on Morgan's 1972 article in terms of its place in the historiography of early America and its position within Morgan's scholarly trajectory.
