"John James Audubon's images of bats are published here for the first time, as are some never-before-seen photographs of newsboys and girls by Lewis Hine. This issue includes two articles centered on the Gilded Age, one by Joshua Brown on Frank Leslie and scandalous pictorial news, and another by Margaret Hofer on satire as depicted on the McLoughlin Brothers' board game, ""Bulls and Bears."" Theodore Sizer comments on text about Major John Andre, and Allen Guelzo analyzes a document by Abraham Lincoln on the abolition of slavery. The ""history makers"" interview is with Richard Gilder and Lewis Lehrman, and the ""teacher feature"" is on the Civil Rights movement. This issue inaugurated the ""books in brief"" and ""historians' picks"" section; both regular features highlighting recent books in history and the book recommendations of eminent historians."
