Welcome to Study Marry Kill*, an American history newsletter from me, Alexis Coe. I’m a presidential historian, New York Times bestselling author, frequent talking on television, radio, and podcasts. In this newsletter, I take a more personal approach. I see this newsletter as a place to get weird, promote new work by historians who excite me, and share thoughts I wouldn’t elsewhere.

Sign up to receive fascinating, consequential, freakishly grotesque tidbits from history to your inbox every Wednesday. The newsletter is free — thanks to the support of Substack — but special editions, AMAs, and most of the archive will only be available to paid subscribers.

*No dead people will be harmed in the making of this newsletter.
