Course Description:
This is the first of two Honors courses that comprise United States History. The student begins by examining early American history focusing on key events of the American Revolution up to the causes and conclusion of the American Civil War. The student will then study the Gilded Age in which many changes took place in political and business practices, immigration and demographic changes, to the equality of African Americans, and the effect of labor unions. Next, the student will examine the emergence of the United States as a world power focusing on imperialism and how that shaped financial and political policies in the United States and abroad. The student will also focus on the United States policy on World War I. Finally, the student will address the impact of economic, social, and political change on American culture during the two decades following World War I.
