: This course is a study of the age of exploration and the establishment of the North American colonies. Emphasis will be given to the British colonies of the western hemisphere, but the course will also include those colonies of other nations as they affect American growth and development. It will include a broad treatment of social, political, economic, and intellectual forces to 1763.
This is one of my favorite periods in American history and one I find folks in the midwest understand the least. This course is designed in part to help you come to grips with the lives of the grandfathers of the Founding Fathers.
