Want to learn more about U.S. history but don’t know where to start? Learn it painlessly, beginning with this eight-week survey of the colonial origins of American history. We’ll begin with the settlement and development of the colonies (themselves full of struggles for freedom against government outrages) and continue on to the imperial crisis, the American Revolution, and the drafting and ratification of the Constitution. These topics are the indispensable foundation for future study of American history.
