The Editorial Staff of the Georgetown Journal of History is proud to publish the Fall 2018 edition. This edition includes articles written by undergraduates at small elite colleges and great state universities in the United States and in Canada. The topics discussed in the articles cover thousands of years and myriad regions of the world. Each article was edited by one of our undergraduate student editors and by a Georgetown University professor; we would like to thank them for their contributions that made this edition possible.
We would also like to thank Professor Amy Leonard who facilitated much of the communication between our editorial board and the Georgetown University History Department.
