HIST 233: Creating a Nation: U.S. History, 1789-1826

This course examines the creation of an American political system and the development of American identity during the first few decades of the nation’s history, including how power was allocated among the President, Congress, the federal courts, and the states, as well as how the national economy and a system for raising revenue were established. Other topics include how that generation defended the country against foreign threats and dealt with the challenges of sectional and racial divisions. [SS] Prof. Rosen
