Welcome to WikiProject United States History. Some Wikipedians have formed this collaboration resource and group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of United States history and the organization of information and articles on this topic. This page and all subpages of this page contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list below.

Goals edit

The WikiProject United States History is a project aimed towards the development and expansion of articles on the History of the United States, including:

To provide guidelines and recommendations for articles that describe all aspects of United States history.
To improve Wikipedia's coverage of United States history by creating, expanding, and maintaining such articles.
To address POV issues and tentative edits in articles within the scope of the project.
To serve as the central point of discussion for issues related to the history of the United States in Wikipedia.

Scope edit

The project generally considers any article related to prehistorical, historical or modern-day affairs of America and its territories to be within its scope. As history we regard the study and interpretation of the record of humans, families, and societies as preserved primarily through written sources. In other words, ambition of the project is to cover articles related to:

  • the history of ancient America
  • the history of the native Americans
  • the history of European settlement in America
  • the present day history of America
  • any and all articles relating to important historical Americans

All of these articles should be included in the Category:History of the United States or one of its subcategories.
