I would recommend applying to no more than 15 because then it gets to be too much. A good list contains a list of safeties, which are schools that you are guaranteed to get into. Match schools or Target schools are schools you can get into, but they are still competitive. Then reach out to schools, which are super competitive colleges that you have a small chance of getting into. As for the history one I; 'm not sure but just look at the rankings of the top History programs and build your list off of that and other factors you want in a college.
