Go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Export
In "Add pages from category" insert: History and press Add.
A list of all articles in History category will fill the box.
You can add the contents of more categories and they will be added at
Finally, press Export to download a dump of those pages selected (you
can also manually add/remove them in the textbox).

directly at Category:History, but not those at Category:Historians,
which is a subcategory of History.
