Registration holds your spot in this class. You may pay the $350 class fee the first day of class or split it into two payments, one due the first day of class and the other due March 1.

This history class will explore the early years of American history (roughly 1770 - 1800) as portrayed in the popular Broadway musicals 1776 and Hamilton.  We will talk about the actual history behind the entertainment, and how it relates to what's going on in our world today. Students will gain a greater understanding of the historical events that led up to the American Revolution and how our country was formed in the early years post-Revolution, learn more about our Founding Fathers and the beliefs that caused them to fight for independence, and explore both sides of key political and philosophical questions of the period (strong federal government vs. states' rights, wealthy investors vs. the 'ordinary citizen', intervention vs. isolation) that still inform political debate today.
