Welcome to US History

Welcome! On our course site you will find not only detailed information regarding course requirements, but a forum for discussion.  We can continue on our topics from our class meetings or begin new conversation on current issues.

This class is a survey course in United States History after 1865. You will find links to the lecture outlines on the menu above. Each lecture covers a key topic in US History. You can download copies of the lecture outlines before or after class. The outlines are not a substitute for attendance and note-taking. They are simply a list of topics for us to cover.

Copies of the class syllabus with detailed information regarding course requirement, objectives, and due dates for assignments will be distributed at our first meeting. For those who did not attend the first class or misplaced the syllabus, you can download a copy from our course Blackboard site.  There is a link from this page.

If you have any questions, I can be contacted by email at pcatapano@citytech.cuny.edu.
