Before Detroit became the automobile capital of the world, it was a tiny French settlement, founded in 1701 at the critical intersection of East and West. By 1837, when Michigan attained statehood, Detroit was a thriving American metropolis, poised to become a manufacturing powerhouse. Through an array of primary and secondary sources, this course will use four lenses to examine and understand Detroit's rapid development: contact between Native Americans and Europeans, commerce, commodities, and culture. By the end of the academic term, students will have a broader understanding of early Detroit, its growth, and its place within frontier and empire, as well as a greater command of the tools needed to be effective readers and writers. Students will be expected to complete a number of formal and informal writing assignments, including four analytical essays.
