Two JAH articles in Junto finals

jmm16The Junto’s annual March Madness competition is down to two articles—both from the Journal of American History.

The final round pits Jill Lepore’s widely-cited 2001 JAH piece “Historians Who Love Too Much: Reflections on Microhistory and Biography” against Edmund Morgan’s classic 1972 OAH Presidential Address “Slavery and Freedom: The American Paradox.” Go vote for your favorite!

Thanks to the Junto for this great competition that has brought attention to some great early American history articles. Check out the 21 JAH articles that made the competition’s first stage and the entire field of 64.
