American history is largely a debate over what it means to be American. Students engage this debate by studying the major events and themes of the American past and exploring how different groups accommodated the forces of change. Students consider how various peoples accepted and resisted institutional change, cultural and social development, and political evolution from Raleigh to Reagan, from colonies to Cold War.
