American Heritage is a journal committed to informing the general public about the history of the United States of America. It is published by American Heritage, a not-for-profit organization that was founded in 1963.
Heritage focuses on American history from the perspective of different regions and periods through articles, reviews, and interviews with important figures from past centuries.
Each issue contains articles on a variety of topics related to U.S. History, including politics, society, art, culture, economics, women's issues, minorities, and war. There are also book reviews and essays on various topics related to history. Each issue is designed to provide information on several periods and areas of interest within history. For example, one issue may cover events from 1500 to 1750 while another may focus on 1960s activism.
History is the record of what has happened in our world: wars and peace treaties, revolutions and monarchies. The people who study history try to make sense of these events, using evidence from sources such as official documents, archeological discoveries, and first-hand accounts.
A historian might write an article on how presidents have affected economic growth during their time in office.

About the Authors: AHP produces American Heritage, the country's oldest and most popular history magazine, as well as Invention & Technology, the only mainstream magazine devoted to the history of invention and technology. It has also released over 300 books and is now developing ebooks and instructional products. The company was founded in 1969 by Andrew Wylie and James Walker, who were looking for a way to use their history backgrounds to publish a book they could sell themselves.
They found a partner in Harper & Row, which agreed to distribute the book if the founders would be its principal authors. Thus was born American Heritage, which quickly became one of the top 10 bestselling history magazines in the country. Within a few years, other writers were added to the roster, including many current and former employees of Harper & Row and Wylie and Walker. Today, more than 100 people work on the magazine at its headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts.
Harper & Row was acquired by Rupert Murdoch in 1991, but the two companies could not agree on a price for the company, so Harper's was split off into its own independent company. In 1998, American Heritage was sold to ABC News publisher Simon & Schuster for $40 million, where it remains today.
In 1999, Walker and Wylie decided to focus exclusively on publishing history books and magazines, and thus was born the company that you see today.
