Course Title
U.S. History Survey to Civil War

Description of Course:

This course will survey the history of the American people from the pre-Columbian period through Reconstruction. In addition to touching on the key turning points—such as the introduction of European epidemics, the American Revolution, and the Civil War, for example—we will also explore a variety of regional political, economic, and cultural developments, particularly in the present-day American West and Southwest, while also focusing on the evolution of race and gender relations. The purpose of this course is to provide students with not only a general overview of American history up to 1877, but with a more complete understanding of how different segments of the America population experienced and influenced that history.
