HIST 2127-01 - The Hudson River and its Valley
In this course, we will examine American History from the discovery of the Hudson River by Europeans to the present day by studying the river, its valley, and the places directly connected to that large swathe of New York State. We will see how far and wide its impact stretched as we learn how to think about the discipline of History; understand its many connections; and to understand why history is so important to civilization. Lastly, we will study the notion of local history and its connections to state, national, and international history.
