From the Instructor:
In HST 201 (U.S. History to 1840) we explore what it means to be an American? What holds We the People of the United States together as a nation? We do not share a common race, ethnicity or religion. We do share a set of ideas. Everything we believe in as Americans our noblest ideals, our highest aspirations equality, liberty, self-government and the pursuit of happiness came from the colonial American experience. We go back to this founding era to reaffirm the ideals and values that bind us together. To be an American is to believe in something liberty and freedom. (G. Wood) But as Abraham Lincoln noted in 1864, We all declare for liberty, but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing. Americans agree that these values are vital to our nation, but what do they mean, and how have their meanings been contested and changed over time? So, the bottom line is that, What made America free, and keeps it so, was not any single version of liberty and freedom but the interplay of many visions. (D. H. Fischer)
