This course is going to look at some of the best and worst times in the United States of America. As we head out of the initial colonial troubles and try to put slavery behind us, we find ourselves in the midsts of World War I. Surviving that, we dive into the excitement of the Roaring 20s. All good things must come to an end however and the Roaring 20s were no exception. On the heels of this golden time came the Great Depression, a time of great sorrow and darkness for the people of the United States of America. Join us as we take this rollercoaster trip through history and march steadily towards World War II and the future.
