Section Information for Fall 2017
This course is the capstone of the History major. Students are required to produce a substantial research paper based on their reading of primary and secondary sources from the founding era of American history. This period is broadly construed as encompassing the entire era that includes the French and Indian War, the American War for Independence, the writing of the U.S. Constitution, and the emergence of the first political parties in the 1790s. Students may focus on political or military topics of their choice or on subjects relating to women, slavery, religion, or culture more generally. After reading a short text providing a brief overview of the American Revolution, students, with the assistance of the instructor, will focus their attention on the various stages of researching and writing the research paper.
