HIST 220 U. S. History I, from the Colonial Period to 1877

This course will provide students with an understanding of the factors that brought together the people of Europe, the Americas, and Africa, led to the establishment of colonies by European countries, and eventually contributed to the formation of the United States as an independent nation. From the colonial period to the establishment of a new nation dependent on a slave economy, through a nation at war with itself, students will study speeches, diaries, letters, and other texts that highlight the challenges faced by the nation before and during its first century of existence.
