American Studies 100 Wednesday, February 24, 1999 Announcements: No Class on Monday, March 1st, 1999 Lecture notes: "We Americans are driven to a rejection of the maxims of the past, seeing that, ere long, the van of the nation must, of right, belong to ourselves .... We Americans are the peculiar chosen peole...the Israel of our time; we bear the ark of the liberties of the world. Seventy years ago we escaped from thrall; and...God has given us, for a future inheritance, the broad domains of the political pagan, that shall yet come and lie down under the shade of our ark, without bloody hands being lifted. God has predestinated, mankind expects, great things of our race; and great things we feel in our souls." Herman Melville, White Jacket Points of Crevecoeur From Letters from an American Farmer Trying to define what an American is for the Europeans (combining myth and reality) American "Adam" Western Pilgrims Religious "Indifference" "Men are like Plants" Charleston/Slavery American Adam Who is an american??? => A new man

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
