an historic vs a historic :

an historic or a historic

You should use “an” before a word beginning with an “H” only if the “H”is not pronounced: “an honest effort”; it’s properly “a historic event”though many sophisticated speakers somehow prefer the sound of “anhistoric,” so that version is not likely to get you into any realtrouble.
