Examine what you know – or what you thought you knew – about American History in this interactive discussion class based on The Great Courses DVD lectures presented by Dr. Mark Stoler, an American history scholar and professor emeritus at the University of Vermont. In this lecture series, Stoler breaks down common myths and half-truths about our country’s history and the subjectivity of those who documented the narrative of US events. Each class includes interactive discussion periods where we will discuss key points and questions raised in the video lectures. Part II of this course will address the westward expansion of the early 1800s through the Civil War and into the events of the early 1900s.
