the history of the United States from its earliest settlement through the Civil War

Examining the history of the United States from its earliest settlement through the Civil War, this
course focuses on the origins and development of issues relevant to Americans today.
Learners study themes and events ranging from pre-Columbian Native American cultures
through early European settlements; the triumph of British over French and Spanish settlers; the
upheavals of the Revolution; the establishment of the United States; its expansion westward;
and the threat to the country presented by the problem of slavery which culminated in the Civil
War.
Please note: Since the summer is condensed to 8 weeks, instead of the usual 12, the

expectations of this course.
