E. Cheyfitz.

The American Revolution was a war fought by European settlers against England that ended the colonial domination of these settlers in the founding of the United States. But the settlers were themselves colonizers of American Indian  land and African labor, exploiting these communities within a capitalist regime. Reading Native American, African American, and Euramerican texts within a time frame that extends from 1492 to the early 19th Century, the course will study the conflicts of colonial settlement that generated the United States past and present.
