Welcome to the current volume of Ibid.: A Student History Journal, published by the Eta Nu Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta History Honor Society at TWU. Celebrating fifteen years of publishing the best in graduate and undergraduate scholarship, Ibid.’s current volume continues the journal’s strong tradition of faculty and student collaboration.

In 2021, the national office of Phi Alpha Theta awarded this journal a prestigious Gerald Nash Journal Prize for the eighth consecutive year. This national award recognized TWU students for their superlative efforts in creating a professional journal. In 2019, the national office of Phi Alpha Theta named the Eta Nu Chapter a “Best Chapter” for the seventh year in a row.

Thanks to a generous private endowment, Ibid. was able to award two prizes for the “Best Papers” appearing in this volume. Named after TWU Professor Emeritus Valentine J. Belfiglio, these prizes, awarded to Paola Alonso and Stefanie Hustoft, reward excellent scholarship and writing.

In addition to featuring our Belfiglio Prize winners’ essays, the current volume includes featured forum departments examining Southern History, In Times of War, and The American West. Celebrating more than a decade of publishing the best in student research and writing, the editors of Ibid.: A Student History Journal proudly invite you to enjoy our 15th volume.
