This 84-lecture series features three top professors sharing insights into this nation’s past, from European settlement and Revolutionary War through Civil War, 19th-century industrialization, world wars, and today.

This course provides a lucid picture into factors that enabled the U.S. to become the largest, wealthiest, most powerful democratic republic in history, including its:

  • sense of confidence and national destiny
  • religiousity and belief in virtue
  • abundance of natural resources and entrepreneurial talent
  • ability to accept a diverse array of immigrants
  • success in making democracy work as reality rather than as theory.

This sweeping series reveals vital and often overlooked aspects of U.S. history as well as new insights into well-known people, ideas, inventions, and occurrences.
