Grossman 106 Limit 25
In these six sessions, we will strive to better understand how we became the nation we are today. We will discuss the following topics: the “First People” and their legacy; the colonial heritage; slavery and its enduring impact; pioneering the arts of self-government and its limitations; becoming an industrial, cultural and military colossus; and the struggle for economic justice. We will uncover the essential arguments America has always had in finding our way and defining ourselves.
