    About This Course

    The course covers the period of United States history from early European colonization to the end of Reconstruction, with the majority of questions on the period of 1790 through 1877. In the part covering the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, emphasis is placed on British colonies. The following topics are included on this exam: political institutions, political developments, behavior and public policy, social developments, economic developments, cultural and intellectual developments, and diplomacy and international relations. This exam is not just the facts that you may recall from your high school history class; the same specifics that may have found their way into the back cobwebs of your mind. History is not the rote memorization of historical figures, dates, or events. Rather, history provides us with understanding – a comprehension of how the past affects our present and our future.
