The 2016 Charter Oak Award for Best Historical
WINNERS & SHORTLISTED FINALISTS

We here at Alternating Current feel that it is highly important to reward our authors with every possible chance for recognition of their fine crafts. We are pleased to announce the winners and finalist shortlist for The 2016 Charter Oak Award for Best Historical, honoring the independent press’ best writing on themes of historical people, places, events, objects, or ideas. The pieces are judged blindly by an external panel to determine the semifinalist longlist and then a finalist shortlist. The first place winner will be published in January, and the rest will follow, through December, with the winning pieces being published once per month throughout the year on The Current. All semifinalist and finalist pieces will be published in the forthcoming Footnote: A Literary Journal of History #2.
