Footnote #2: A Literary Journal of History

Foot•note (fŏŏt’nōt') n.1. A note placed at the bottom of a page of a book or manuscript that comments on or cites a reference for a designated part of the text. 2. Something related to but of lesser importance than a larger work or occurrence.*
* Sounds about like everything important we ever learned in history class, doesn’t it?

The second issue of our annual literary publication dedicated to historical and contemporary views on history contains poetry, maps and historical photographs, fiction, essays, articles, and nonfiction by various authors, both contemporary and historical, about many topics of history. History is our passion here at Alternating Current, and we are excited by pieces that give an author’s intimate or emotional take on historical places, people, events, or ideas. Within our pages, you will find contemporary outlooks on history right alongside little-known public domain works that feel as fresh and vibrant as if they were written today. Here, the old meets the new in an explosive way that has never before seen the page, and we welcome you to discover fascinating history from a personal, non-scholarly literary approach. From our history, we learn our future, and there are few things more rewarding.
