I signed up for my 3rd class at American Military University today. The American Revolution in Context starts on October 5. I am sure that I’ll be writing about the course on here so stay tuned! The course description reads:
|This course is a comparative study to demonstrate the importance of the historical context of any great military event. Context includes all aspects of a society or culture and in this case, 18th century British and colonial American political and constitutional philosophies, social norms and societal structure, economics, religious concepts, and foreign and diplomatic policy. Students examine issues such as divergent historiographical opinions on the degree of American constitutional conservatism versus political and social radicalism, and the nature of the soldiery of the continental Army.
