About

The National History Center brings history and historians into the public arena by providing historical perspectives on current issues and promoting historical thinking in the service of civic engagement.  The Center carries out these goals through strictly nonpartisan programs that are intended for the benefit of policy makers and the press, educators, and the public at large.  Its initiatives are intended to bring the insights of history and historical thinking to bear on the challenges that confront our nation and the world and to encourage an informed appreciation of the ways the past shapes the present.
