The Long 19th Century in the United States
HIST 239
Spring 2013
Section: 01  

This course will introduce students to important themes in the history of the United States during the "long" 19th century, from the early Republic to the World War I. These include continental expansion and U.S. imperialism, the creation of new markets, the development of agriculture and industry, the failure of slavery, and new currents of immigration. We will examine how enslaved and free people of many geographic origins contested the scope and significance of democracy, community, and nationhood through diverse expressions of support and dissent, protest, and reform.
