HIS 250-OLA - Era of the American Revolution
An in-depth view of the American struggle for independence, removing much of the mythology that surrounds this classic confrontation between colonies and mother country. Beginning with the French and Indian War, the course examines the crises leading to revolution, the military aspects of the war itself, and ends with a look at the new nation in its infancy. Particular attention is focused on both British and Colonial views toward independence, the conspiratorial activities of the radical revolutionary minority, and the roles played by various individuals on all sides of the struggle in the War for Independence.
