The Atlantic Monthly is an American monthly magazine that began in November 1857. It is also known as The Atlantic.
The magazine made the first publications of Julia Ward Howe's "Battle Hymn of the Republic" (on February 1, 1862), and William Parker's the Freedman's Story (in February and March, 1866). It has also published many of the works of Mark Twain, including one that managed to escape publication until 2001.
