This course begins with European arrival in the New World and moves on to colonial America, examining early America regionally. Pre-revolutionary America warrants special attention, including the French and Indian War leading to the Stamp Act and the activities of Boston's "Sons of Liberty." The Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution are examined in detail. Jeffersonian and Jacksonian democracy, westward expansion and the events and issues leading to the American Civil War conclude the course. The role of women and various ethnic groups in the development of America are considered throughout the course. This course partially satisfies the writing requirement of S.B.E. 6A-10.030.
