Description

This course will focus on the wars and military conflicts that have shaped the social, political, and economic development of the United States from the colonial era through the present. You will learn how these conflicts have led to significant changes in America social and political life during this 300-year period. The course will be structured chronologically. Each unit will include representative primary-source documents that illustrate important overarching themes, such as how colonial conflicts in the 18th century shaped the political organization of the United States, how regional conflicts in the 19th century culminated in the Civil War, how America cemented its status as a major world power through participation in the First and Second World Wars, how Cold War conflicts destabilized American social and political life, and how modern conflicts continue to redefine American social and political values and ideals. By the end of the course, you will understand how three centuries of warfare have reshaped America’s relationship with the world and altered American society in unexpected ways.
