Course Scope |

This course will examine the historical evolution of the United States from its colonial period to the end of the Reconstruction. It is important to understand that the events taking place in the United States did not occur in a vacuum. As such, a major focus of this course will entail placing American history in the larger context of western civilization. Hence, a constant emphasis is on the “big picture.” The intent is to give the student not only a firm grasp of American history but also a solid understanding of why these events were, and still are, important. The course will examine these developments chronologically (at least largely) with particular emphasis placed upon foreign and domestic political, economic and military policies, as well as the evolution of industry and society.
