HIST 212 - ERA OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION
From the earliest days of the republic, Americans have debated the origins and significance of their revolutionary beginnings. This class will study the Revolution's meaning and aftermath by uncovering the perspectives of ordinary participants on the nation they created. Students will explore, through close readings of both primary and secondary sources, how and why men and women did, or did not, join the revolutionary struggle, and how revolutionary ideals were translated and transformed during the constitutional period. Topics covered include: the unraveling of Britain's North American empire; how fighting the Revolution challenged participants to rethink their positions on political participation, slavery, liberty, and race; the role of women in a republican society; the effects of social inequality, religion, and ideology on political mobilization; African American and Native American interpretations of the conflict, and post-war social unrest.
