Section Information for Spring 2018

“America’s Forgotten War” does not occupy much space in public consciousness, but this wide-ranging conflict was essential in shaping the political, military, geographic, and economic future of the new United States, as well as the futures of Canada, Florida, three European empires, and Native American communities both east and west of the Mississippi. In this class, we will explore the events, origins, and ultimate significance of this forgotten war, covering topics ranging from the high politics of the Jefferson, Madison, and Monroe administrations to the daily lives of American soldiers and sailors to Native American independence movements in the heart of the continent.
