About this course:

The American Revolution was a complex and multifaceted conflict that is often misunderstood and simplified as a political and military struggle between 13 of Britain’s North American colonies and the British imperial government. This course provides an overview of the Revolutionary period from roughly 1760 to 1800, as it examines the origins and outcomes of the American Revolution. Topics include British colonial America; the Seven Years War; the social, economic, intellectual, and political origins of the war; non-traditional perspectives of the conflict; and the legacy of the American Revolution.
