[HIST 210] Topics in History: Living & Dying in Colonial America
The Thirteen Colonies that participated in the Revolutionary War were part of a larger network of British settlements extending from the Newfoundland fisheries to the West Indian sugar plantations to the South American coastline. They were linked by trade and culture to other parts of the Atlantic World, including Europe and Africa. This course will explore the lives of ordinary colonial settlers, planters, and merchants and their social relations during this period. Open to first-year students. No prerequisites.
