Some history

Recently I've read a handful of interesting history articles. Victor Davis Hanson's latest book on the Peloponnesian War got a good review in The New Criterion, and after reading a chapter of it online (1 2 3 4 5), I think I shall add this book to my Christmas wish list.

Then I read this TNR article on (negative) French attitudes towards America which covers some interesting history on this topic.

Most recently I read this OpinionJournal article on the origins of a very familiar Thanksgiving hymn; see also David Kopel's commentary.
