Acknowledging Good History Writers

Mar 9, 2018 by

Michael F. Shaughnessy –

As we mourn the loss of those students in Parkland, Florida, we must continue to acknowledge the good work of many teachers, and the good writing of many students, who have gone ” above and beyond” the call of duty in terms of their historical research.

So, here I would like to acknowledge Vol 28, number 3 of the Concord Review, edited by Will Fitzhugh and the writers that have contributed to it in the Spring 2018 issue.

Here are the essays, their writers and their affiliations:

1) General John Sullivan by William Stuart Friend, of Governor’s Academy of Byfield, Massachusetts

2) Biological Weapons by Bohan Meng of The Diplomacy Academy Qingdao

3) Emergency Rule in India by Abhishek Hariharan of Middlesex Country Academy for STEM, Edison, New Jersey

4) Machine Politics by Rachel Horowitz of St. Ann’s School, Brooklyn, New York

5) Coups in Pakistan by Tanmay Gupta of The Shri Ram School, Aravali, Haryana

6) Mail Order by Benjamin Jacon Firester of Hunter College High School , Manhattan Island, New York

7) Occupation of Japan by Layla McDermott of Groton School, Groton Massachusetts

8) Back to Africa by Jong-Beom (JB) Lim

9) Cuban Revolution by Imayavaramban Anabayan of Marquette High School, Chesterfield, Missouri

10) Bretton Woods by Shaurya Salwan of Montclair Kimberley Academy, Monctlair, New Jersey

11) Jose Marti by Mina Park of Bryn Mawr School, Baltimore, Maryland

Certainly there are other great students out there, wonderful, encouraging , nurturing teachers out there- but these are the scholars who have appeared in the latest edition of The Concord Review.
