This course introduces students to American history from settlement of North America in the 16th century to the conclusion of the Civil War. Lectures and discussions emphasize the political, social, economic, religious, and territorial development of society as well as the experiences of daily life. Special attention is paid to topics such as the comparisons among the Spanish, French, and British empires in the New World, the first and second Great Awakening, The American Revolution, the formation of the Constitution, the development of political parties, the nature of slavery, the changing roles of women in families, the war with Mexico and territorial expansion, the growing sectional conflicts, and the Civil War on the battlefield and at home.

The required readings will include both primary and secondary sources and will be examined in weekly discussion sections. There will be both a midterm and final examination, and active participation will be expected in the sections. All readings will be available at the Shapiro Undergraduate Library. The books can be purchased at Michigan Book and Supply, Michigan Union Bookstore and Ulrich's Bookstore.
