HS 365 Rebellions in the United States

This course examines cases where internal political, social, cultural and economic disagreements led to serious conflict.  Students will examine how rebellions in the US have taken many forms.  At the very beginning of the Republic, they took the form of military force against the government.  After the ratification of the Constitution, this type of rebellion virtually disappeared.  After that, rebellions took the form of nullification, Native American resistance, slave rebellions, labor uprisings and women asserting political rights.  The course will include a study of these conflicts, examining the ideas and forces behind them.
