Historical New Hampshire is the journal of the New Hampshire Society and is a benefit of membership in the Society. The journal is published for twofold purpose of encouraging research in New Hampshire history and bringing fresh and interesting historical material to the public. The articles and book reviews in Historical New Hampshire pertain to any aspect of New Hampshire history and culture, although material of regional and national interest may be included if pertinent to New Hampshire. Articles in Historical New Hampshire are peer-reviewed and should reflect original research, innovative approaches, and good writing. Unsolicited book reviews are not accepted, and authors are advised to contact the editor with queries concerning their articles before submission. All correspondence should be addressed to the editor. Articles are reviewed by the editor in consultation with members of the editorial advisory board and possibly outside reviewers.
