We are looking for U.S. historical tourist destinations – to include Native American history, European settlement, African American history, and more – through the time of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. Our goal is to be as inclusive as possible.

Articles must be your original work and should be about 500 to 2,000 words in length, dealing with a U.S. historical destination that is open to tourism. If possible, submit photos of the location along with your article. The style of your article should be more conversational than technical. Destinations should consist of more than just a historical marker or open field.

Video clips should be no longer than about 7 minutes and should be in .mp4 format.
