Course Description

Lectures, readings, videos, maps, and photos are used to provide students with a survey of US history from Reconstruction through the 1980s. As such, students will study significant aspects of the nation's political, economic, cultural, and diplomatic history and will be challenged to understand the why, how, and so what of this history. We begin with learning about what happened, but we then proceed to questions of causality and consequence. Students will be assigned to read a prominent US History textbook (concise edition) and 3 or 4 other books. There are two midterm exams (essay questions) and a cumulative final exam.
