This course surveys American political, social, economic, and intellectual developments from pre-Columbian America
to the present. Reading, writing, historical geography, and analytical
skills are emphasized throughout. Key events and issues of discussion
and debate include immigration and settlement, America’s changing race
relations, origins of American culture and government, the development
of American slavery and racism, the Civil War and Reconstruction, the
growth of the federal government, and the rise of the United States to
global prominence. This course is intended to parallel and thematically
reinforce Marlborough’s course in American literature.
