A page of history is worth a volume of logic." Oliver Wendell Holmes History 1301 provides a survey of U.S. history from the Age of Discovery through Reconstruction. Special emphasis will be on the American Revolution, the formation of a republic under the U.S. Constitution, westward expansion and the Civil War. History is a subject, which enables man to grasp a relationship with the past and then proceed forward with some sense of security. As well as serving this end, history may also be read for amusement, for its richness, or for its drama. History is not static nor is it drab. It is alive in many ways, constantly being reborn as mankind changes its perspective. Thus, while the best history endures over the years, each generation has to rewrite its own view of the past for its own purposes. In order to be successful in this course, students need to be self-motivated and conscientious. While the instructor is available for help, students are essentially undertaking a voyage into the American past with only a map to follow. Good luck on your journey!
