Geography and Environment in American History

Course Description:

Washington’s troops suffering through the winter at Valley Forge, the Framers perspiring in Philadelphia’s summer heat, Sacajawea traveling with Lewis and Clark along the Columbia River, the Forty-Niners rushing to California in search of gold—many of the most memorable events in American history cannot be imagined apart from the places in which they took place. Explore the relationship between geography and history, analyzing Annenberg Learner videos, primary source documents, and the work of geographers and historians. At the end of the course, learners earn a Certificate of Completion.

Note: This is a self-paced course accessible for one year after enrollment, and not eligible for graduate credit.
