• December Means It's Time to Support HNN

    After a year of covering the news in historical perspective and highlighting the historians making news, we are asking our community of readers to help sustain HNN. 

  • HNN Will Be On Thanksgiving Break This Week

    HNN will be off Thanksgiving Week. We will return with news aggregation on November 29, and publish new op-eds on December 5. We wish all of our readers a safe, restful, and happy holiday. 

  • HNN Will Be OFF This Thursday and Friday (April 1 and 2)

    HNN will be taking the end of this week off (April 1 and 2). We will not be emailing a newsletter on Friday morning, but will post the week's Roundup Top Ten, along with a slate of new op ed essays, on Sunday. HNN will resume normal news posts on Monday, April 5. 

  • A Personal Message from the Editor

    2020 showed how important history is for understanding the news. If HNN was an important source of insight and information for you in 2020, please support our work for 2021. 

  • HNN Will Be Off for the Week

    History-related news will return on November 30, along with HNN's annual fund drive--until then, enjoy a restful and safe holiday!

  • UPDATE: Technical Difficulties

    We apologize if any of you have had difficulty contacting HNN by email between Wednesday evening and the present time. Our email host is experiencing technical difficulties that have prevented HNN from receiving email on several of our accounts.
