In this course, you will explore United States history from 1815 through the early 20th Century. We will use primary documents, simulations, research, projects, and a lot of other great activities to guide you in understanding and answering crucial questions in American history. We will look to discover not only what happened, but to interpret the causes and effects of those events and connect them to life today. The past reveals the sinfulness of man, and in this course we will emphasize God’s grace and our need for a Savior.

Above all, we will ask, “Where do we see God’s hand?” History is truly “His story,” and so as we explore the beginnings of our nation, we will come back to our main spiritual truths. Why? Because you are tomorrow’s leaders and we need leaders who remember that our nation was founded on the Word of God and Christian convictions. How will you lead?
