U.S. History from pre-colonial indigenous America to the late 19th century. Causes, variations, and impacts of colonialism on Indigenous, African and European Americans. The movement toward national independence and the American Revolution will be examined. The Constitution and resulting institutions will be analyzed, as well as national expansion, reform, and resulting regional/sectional social and political developments through the U.S. Civil War. This course uses the early evolution of the relationships between local, state, and national governments as a comparative framework for understanding contemporary relationships between local, state, and national governments.
