"America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand."
The scope of the course begins with the emergence of Colonial America, (1400s) and continues through the end of the Cold War in the 20th Century.
In this course, we will study patterns of social, religious, economic, technological, and political change. We will also be looking for the threads of continuity that tie each of these concepts together. Students will be encouraged to apply the lessons learned in class to their own lives and ask questions.
