Course Description

Without a doubt, one of the most important events in all world history (not to mention American history) was the American Revolutionary War.  Through the battles that were to take place between Great Britain and its American Colonies, the face of the world would be changed forever with the birth of a new nation. The Revolutionary War and the significant events that transpired immediately before and after are essential to understand.
 


The American Revolution set the stage for the creation of the United States of America, one of the most powerful and influential countries in the history of the world.  Throughout the years that followed the American Revolutionary War, the fledgling nation would form, expand, and grow to become a dominant power in world affairs by the early twentieth century.

 

 

This course will describe many of the key aspects of the war: 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.  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, extra tutoring, test prep, or the non-academic hobbyists and life-long learners.

Student Testimonials

  • "The entire course was an enlightening and positive experience for me. The lessons contained many interesting facts that I had never learned in school. Not only did I refresh my mind of forgotten information but I learned about events and people who were so famous in the struggle for independence. Just a wonderful online course!" -- Sara H.
  • "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... Loved it... The instructor was great and the course gave me great knowledge I did not have before." -- Don C.
  • "The lessons were wonderful. The video clips and supplemental links were great....GREAT." -- Jessica H.
  • "I liked miniclips they added nice touch to the material. Exams were really good, not too hard nor too easy. Nice balance....I think the course was well thought out. Feedback to assignments and exams did not take long time, which was great." -- Liisi L.
