Course Description:

From the minute the Pilgrims landed in the New World, events were set in motion. Everyone knows about the Revolutionary War, but what other events created the unique county we know as the United States? How did the US become a world power? What was the War of 1812? Manifest Destiny? How did Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty become the symbol of freedom the world over? Prohibition. The Roaring Twenties. The Dust bowl. What really happened at the Alamo – The Manhattan Project? – 9/11? And will the United States emerge as a leader in a post Covid world? We will examine the major events and some forgotten events that made us what we are.
