Creation and development of the United States socially, economically, politically, culturally. Jacksonian era, expansion, commercial and industrial revolution, slavery, Civil War, Reconstruction. History 202 is the middle part of the United States History survey course sequence (HIST 201-203). History 202, itself, surveys the United States from about 1820, late in the age we call "early American," until about 1916, in what we call "the Progressive Era." So, the course will cover almost 100 years, in which the American population grew from 10 million people to 100 million, an industrially underdeveloped country became the world's leading industrial producer, and a vulnerable ex-colonial country became and international "Great Power."
