I am an amateur historian who is considering writing a book about the history of Treason in the United States. I have a dilemma with how to format citations.
The book, by nature of being history of law, would have to cite both historical and legal sources.
Should I cite everything using Chicago Style, everything one of the law citation formats, or use the Chicago style for the history sections and the law citations for the legal section?
Does my choice in citation format affect my book's ability to be cited in academic journals?
