The Journal of American History

Description: In 1964 the Mississippi Valley Historical Review, published by the Organization of American Historians, became The Journal of American History. The change in title reflected not only an awareness of a growing national membership in the Association, but recognized a decided shift in contributor emphasis from regional to nationally-oriented history. The Journal of American History remains the leading scholarly publication and journal of record in the field of American history and is well known as the major resource for the study, investigation, and teaching of our country's heritage. Published quarterly in March, June, September and December, the Journal continues its distinguished career by publishing prize-winning and widely reprinted articles on American history. Each volume contains interpretive essays on all aspects of American history, plus reviews of books, films, movies, television programs, museum exhibits and resource guides, as well as microform, oral history, archive and manuscript collections, bibliographies of scholarship contained in recent scholarly periodicals and dissertations.

Coverage: 1964-2012 (Vol. 51, No. 1 - Vol. 99, No. 3)

Moving Wall: 5 years (What is the moving wall?)

The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal. Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.

Terms Related to the Moving Wall
Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive.
Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title.
Complete: Journals that are no longer published or that have been combined with another title.

Julia’s Legacy:

The words of her close friends and campers whose lives she impacted give a poignant look at the influence Julia’s short life had on those who knew her best:

“Julia taught me that each day is a gift, to get excited about the small things, Nutella tastes good on anything, to be more confident in myself, and that a day is not complete without a belly aching laugh. Julia’s passion for the Lord was undeniable; it gushed out of her heart and flowed into every aspect of her life. Julia was joyful, loving, radiant, energizing, inspiring, and someone who understood what it meant to live a life fully dedicated to the Lord. I feel beyond blessed that I was able to call Julia a close friend and I am a better person because of it. ” – Danielle Hughes, 2013 Catawba Tribal Leader

“Julia was one of the most relatable people that I have ever met. You could always count on her to have coffee in one hand and Nutella in the other while speaking Christ-centered truths to everyone around her.” – Collyn Greenhill, Fellow Cheyenne counselor in 2012 and fellow Assistant Tribal Leader in 2013

“After just two short weeks filled with numerous laughs and dance parties, I felt like Julia had been an old friend of mine for many years. Her joy lit up the entire room and she taught me that being yourself is the key. It is the love and joy she showed me that I want to share with others.” – Regan Hamrick, Catawba camper

“Her life was a daily celebration. She lived a life that is undoubtedly one lived out of love and grace and hope, and now she is living where she really belongs. She left fingerprints all over my life and the lives of every camper she came in contact with. Because of Julia, I will squeeze everything I can out of life and make the most of both pain and joy.” – Katherine Hancock, Catawba camper
