The Chicago Manual of Style is commonly used for history and the social sciences.
There are two ways to do Chicago Manual of Style citations. Most humanities, literature and history papers use the Notes & Bibliography style. Author-Date is used for papers in the physical, natural and social sciences.

Chicago Manual of Style, Notes & Bibliography style recommends using endnotes or footnotes instead of in-text citations. Many of the instructors at Santa Fe prefer the in-text citation method. Please consult with your instructor to determine his or her preference.
