HIST 336. We the People?: The American Revolution Considered

Credits 3.00 PeopleSoft Course ID 014484

This course will advance understanding of the political, economic, social, cultural and intellectual history of the events that led to the formation of the United States as an independent democratic republic. This dynamic course considers the causes and consequences of the American Revolution, and examines questions such as: How high were taxes really? Why was throwing tea in the harbor the height of political intrigue? Why does every politician claim they are doing what the Founding Fathers would have wanted — and are all those other folks just wrong?
