WAR & CONFLICT

 

Our class is designed to provide you with the analytical skills, factual knowledge and writing abilities necessary to deal effectively with the people, issues, movements and events in the United States' past. Specifically, War & Conflict covers the periods in United States history from the French & Indian War to the Gulf War and current military policy. The focus is on each American war or armed conflict, its causes and outcomes. Our enriching journey will culminate with the War Room PDL and final exam in June 2011.

Below you will find notes, assignments and other materials you will need for class. Please check back frequently for updates.
