AMS 256 - Creating a Nation from Founding to Civil War (1789-1877)


1 semester, 3 Credits

Examines the struggles of early Americans to create a viable, lasting republic despite disagreements over the meaning of the Constitution; demands for increased democracy; industrial development; rapid immigration; and expansion westward. Yet nothing threatened the nation more than sectional disagreements over slavery, culminating in the Civil War and Reconstruction. Same as HIS 256. Satisfies pre-1877 American history requirement for major/minor.
