A Note from the Editors

The Crimson Historical Review is the University of Alabama’s first undergraduate history journal, and one of the few of its type in the country. The Editorial Board, Design Team, and Review Board are all comprised of UA undergraduate students. You can contact us here.

At the CHR, we purpose to give authors the opportunity to publish original, peer-reviewed content and to share that content on a national platform. We’re incredibly grateful that, whether it be by submitting a paper or reading our most recent edition, you’ve helped actualize that aim.

We’d like to especially thank Dr. Margaret Peacock, whose leadership and guidance were integral to the success of this fourth edition, and the University of Alabama’s Department of History, whose support has brought this journal to life.

We hope you enjoy the latest edition of Crimson Historical Review.
