Using a multitude of primary sources from the New-York Historical Society’s collections and library, students will experience history through the words and actions of the statesmen, rebels, mothers, and explorers who shaped our nation. Each five-week course will examine the lives, influence, and perspective of two individuals from a shared moment in our nation’s history. Students will engage letters, diaries, and speeches of these individuals and consider how each shaped American history through their unique and compelling voices.
