America Unabridged: The Readers Respond

June 2024
1min read


My thanks to the staff of American Heritage for your very special fiftieth anniversary issue with its guide to great books (November/December 2004). While one may quibble with some of the choices, overall the contributors were thoughtful and discriminating.

Using books as a theme to inform us about our past is a wonderful way to celebrate your golden anniversary. As Abraham Lincoln said in 1855, ”. . . get the books, and read, and study them carefully. . . .Work, work, work, is the main thing.”

Enjoy our work? Help us keep going.

Now in its 75th year, American Heritage relies on contributions from readers like you to survive. You can support this magazine of trusted historical writing and the volunteers that sustain it by donating today.
