American History Course
This course traces American history from its founding through 1877, the end of Reconstruction. It incorporates the “Four Pillars” of American exceptionalism—a Christian, mostly Protestant religious foundation; common law; private property with written titles and deeds; and a free market economy—as they shape the early United States. Part 2 traces American expansion to the world stage right up until today.
World History Since 1775
This course traces world history—Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the United States—from the pivotal year 1775 to the present in two roughly equally balanced halves. It incorporates the “Four Pillars” of American Exceptionalism, or, more accurately, the absence of these and the effects this absence had, on other parts of the world. It includes culture, politics, and economics of the major parts of the world.
