HIS* 219: An American Revolution

3 Credits
Unlike the introductory U.S. history courses that provide a general survey of the settlement, development and growth of the American colonies and subsequent republic, this course focuses specifically on the American Revolution. It explores the events, issues, and players from a fresh perspective during the Independence period. This course’s primary focus is on the ideas and actions of the ordinary people and the diverse groups such as the farmers, slaves, women, and Continental solders. It will examine how these people reacted to the dominant ideas, what actions they participated in pursuing freedom and liberty and how the rhetoric and reality converged or collided, and ultimately what unifying forces prevailed to create the new republic.
Prerequisites: Successful completion of HIS* 201 
Offered: Occasionally
