This course looks at American history from European settlement
through the Civil War.  We will focus on important events, people,
and social conditions that led to the founding and creation of the
United States---and to its crisis at mid-century.

Readings (about 75-100 pages a week) will include a survey textbook,
and other readings, such as Mary Jemison, Narrative, and Melton
McLaurin, Celia: A Slave

Requirements: Attend lectures; read and think.  Evaluation will be in
terms of three examinations (each 20% of course grade) and writing
assignments (40%).
