In just five years, the United States will commemoration the 250th anniversary of its Declaration of Independence. The Semiquincentennial offers a once-in-a-generation opportunity to renew public engagement with history, to transform and strengthen our field, and to help audiences reflect upon the full complexity and diversity of our nation’s past.
That’s why AASLH is thrilled to announce that on July 1, we will publish Making History at 250: The Field Guide for the Semiquincentennial, a new resource to help the history community prepare for 2026. Developed with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in collaboration with colleagues across the country, this publication will feature guiding themes, big-picture goals, and inspiring ideas to help you consider how you can contribute to the 250th commemoration. Whether you’ve already begun planning or are still unsure if and how your community will take part, Making History at 250 will help us all consider how we can fulfill the potential of this anniversary.
