HIS 221 - American History to 1865
Students will examine the first interactions of Native American cultures, European conquerors, and enslaved Africans. They will compare the Spanish, French, and English experiences in North America, and explore the events in the English colonies that led to revolution and independence. They will examine the constitution issues, political clashes, and social changes of the Federalist, Jefferson and Jacksonian periods. Students will explore westward expansion, immigration in the north, and the southern slave economy. They will consider the events of the decade of crisis that led to civil war, and look closely at the war and its major consequences. (Students cannot earn credit for both the HIS 223 and 224 sequence and the HIS 221 and 222 sequence.)
