This course surveys the political, technological, and cultural history of the United States from its beginnings to the present while emphasizing significant events of the twentieth century.  Following a review of the nation’s origins and the impact of the Enlightenment on the American Revolution and the Constitution, students will learn about the effects of the Civil War, Reconstruction, and industrialization on American life. They will also trace the change in the ethnic composition of American society, the movement toward equal rights for racial minorities and women, and the role of the United States as a world power. The expanding role of the federal government, as well as the continuing tension between the individual and the state, will be discussed.
