Letters from the American Past: Honors*
A study of U.S. history through letters written and read by Americans from the Colonial period to the present, reflecting the society and culture they lived in. We will examine the form, content and transmission of the correspondence. Students will be asked to select and research a small letter collection.
I gasped when I saw this in the catalog. I know what history course I’m taking next semester! This is so perfect; finding old documents and reading old letters are some of my favorite things to do!
