History is people making decisions
based on their circumstances.
In our US History class, we look at the circumstances of the time and the choices people made to bring us to where we are today. We focus on Colonial Life, the American Revolution, the Creation of our Federal Government, Manifest Destiny, and the Civil War.á While we focus on these areas, we will incorporate economy with the inventions and technology that move us forward.
