HIST 3411 Study and Writing of History: Colonial Indian Wars (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

The European invasion of North America inspired a number of deadly conflicts between settlers and Indians during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. In this seminar we will examine the causes, contexts, and consequences of these struggles. Most of our common readings will focus on New England, though we will take detours to New Mexico and Pennsylvania. Students will be free in their independent projects to investigate any war involving Indians and colonists from 1492 to 1776.
