Dive into the diversity of American history!

Let's face it, American history is not what most of us have always thought it was. It's not a neat story written in a book or even a hundred books. Not only is it far from finished--we're living it right now--but it is far from being recovered, reclaimed, and recorded. So many voices have been silenced for so long that our historical chorus has often sounded like a brass band with only one trumpet and a beat up tuba.

In recent decades, however, history has begun to change. Historians themselves now come in different colors and shapes. The result is that many voices are being added to the chorus. Complexity is being added to the historical record, along with insight into what it means to be an American. It's the goal of OneHistory to help all the voices be heard.
