Outline of US History

A chronological look at how the United States took shape -- from its origins as an obscure set of colonies on the Atlantic coast a little more than 200 years ago into what one political analyst today calls "the first universal nation." This fully illustrated edition has been completely revised and updated by Alonzo L. Hamby, Distinguished Professor of History at Ohio University.

I have used this as a text for early and modern American history. It is a competent, bare bones history which can easily be supplemented with the teacher's additions. As a public domain document, it can be used as you like. I downloaded it onto my web site and organized it to match my assignments. Not much in the way of extras, but it wan't designed for that.

Technical Remarks:


Used in course? Yes
Time spent reviewing site: Used as text for several semesters.
