Students will continue the story of America from a Christian world-view beginning with the Reconstruction era. This course will cover the historical facts of our history as well as how God has moved in our nation. Using primary source documents, we will analyze historical themes, compare and contrast historical events, and learn to think critically about the past. We will start our journey with Reconstruction and end with Desert Storm and the Middle East exploring how the past has forged the America of today.
