American History has been significantly shaped by two major wars: The Revolutionary War and The Civil War. This course will focus on both of these historical events.  

The American Revolution set the stage for the creation of one of the most powerful and influential countries in the history of the world. Key aspects of the war will be covered: such as  the precipitous events that led up to the war, the shot heard around the world, the Battles of Lexington and Concord, portraits of American patriots and loyalists, the Battle of Long Island, portraits of Redcoat (British) generals and leaders, Valley Forge, the Battle of Yorktown, the Treaty of Paris, and more. 


The Civil War will present the major events and battles in chronological order, discuss the major political issues and philosophies that set the stage for the Civil War, sustained the conflict, and continue to linger on to this day in the hearts and minds of most Americans.  A list of the major figures related to the Civil War will also be presented to highlight each notable person's contributions to the struggle itself and to the overall development of our nation.

 

Both of these wars were grim, brutal, and utterly personal.  The issues and concerns of both wars had great philosophical and emotional impact that continue to influence and inspire the hearts and minds of politicians, statesmen, combatants, and ordinary citizens even in modern times.

No modern politician can ignore or discount the attitudes and mindsets the were forged in the American Revolution and The Civil War --for many of these central beliefs and attitudes continue to thrive in American society, culture, and debate.

Each lesson will focus on particular aspects of the conflict, drawing to light important facts and other information relevant to the events at hand. This course is ideal  for those seeking review of American History, extra tutoring, test prep, or the non-academic hobbyists and life-long learners.

  • "The lessons were wonderful. The video clips and supplemental links were great....GREAT....GREAT." -- Jessica H.
  • "The entire course was both interesting and informative. I now have a better understanding of the battles and the participants in the battles of the Civil War. However it is a very sad chapter in the history of our nation and so utterly unnecessary. The deaths of the soldiers was just overwhelming to me....The instructor has compiled a very informative condensation of the Civil War. He is very propmpt in grading the assignments and the tests. This has been an enlightening experience for me and I am sorry to have the course end. I am hoping that [you] will offer more courses in US history. I would now like to continue on with the reconstruction of the South following the war....The instructor has compiled a very informative condensation of the Civil War.

  • "It was exciting to me especially since we live in the area where many of the battles took place. At an interstate rest area, I was elated to see a large historical marker indicating that Wilhelm von Steuben's home and gravesite was three miles from the rest stop along with an explanation of his role in the Revolutionary War, which, of course, I knew, as a result of this great course....Loved it...
