College American History I

This course will be a semester-long concurrent credit American history course covering the years 1492 to 1877 CE with a special emphasis on the development of the American people over time. The course will span from the Age of Exploration to the Civil War and Reconstruction. While American history often celebrates the efforts of great individuals, our nation’s history is a collective effort. Throughout this course, we will pause to reflect on the status of as many groups as possible to answer one question: ‘What does it mean to be free?’
