Rewinding History ­- The United States of America

Rick, one of the biggest History enthusiasts I’ve ever met and a credentialed teacher, will be covering US History from our inception till today in a bird’s eye-view perspective, since this class is only 1 semester.  If you would like to have a good grasp of all the big events in US History, this is the class for you!

Rewinding History ­ The United States of America

In sixteen session we will attempt to survey, starting with the present and working back,

the personalities and incidents which are requisite for cultural literacy, as well as an opportunity to appreciate the many blessings, privileges and responsibilities of being an American citizen.  We will touch on the explorers, inventors, architects, and artists as well as the politicians.  Geography

discussed as well as all past wars, including the Cold War.  The partial list below of other topics
