David King Hall 2053
Section Information for Spring 2017
This survey of United States history begins with the Native Americans and goes through the Reconstruction era following the Civil War. One objective is to provide a broad sweep of the political, social, religious, and economic roots in the colonial years that contributed to the creation of the republic and set the nation on a path toward democracy. Persistent themes through the Civil War years were whether the American experiment in republican government would work and whether the Union would survive. To understand the issues along the way, it is necessary to focus on the political leadership, the regional differences, and the diverse population that contributed to the American story.
