This course covers the broad sweep of events from the arrival of Columbus to the emergence of the United States as a super power.  There is a heavy focus on the founding of the United States and its Constitution, the evolving branches of government through the early 1800s, the Civil War, the two World Wars, and national economic development.

Students study the dominant patterns of American thought from colonial times to the present.  They consider specific historical problems and use their critical thinking skills in analyzing original documents, maps, and other relevant available information pertaining to the time periods under consideration.
