Welcome to Liberty's Wiki! I am Dr. George Hugh, the Director of Acquisitions at the American Historical Society in Washington, D.C. The purpose of this wiki is to challenge students to really think about American history. The United States has an amazing and rich past, but few ever consider the reasons behind it's founding and it's success as a nation. Hopefully, you will be inspired to look further and dig deeper! the way. This wiki was officially named after my new Beagle puppy...Liberty! I like to think she is an "American Beagle."
