Welcome Homeschooling Students!

Welcome to a new year!

American History is a fascinating and inspiring chronicle of the triumph of the human spirit.  We'll start with the Civil War and follow history through to the current administration of George W. Bush.  Your learning journey will include a variety of discussions on domestic social movements and specific foreign policies as they relate to our current political climate.  We will discuss the benefits and downfalls of specific political moves as well as the economic, cultural, and social development of the Untied States over the course of the last century. 

Students who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.  Let's learn from our mistakes so that we can build a better tomorrow.  Welcome to another year of learning about our great nation.
