Live history and learn about Alexander Hamilton’s World!

Are you young, scrappy and hungry, just like your country? Then you should consider enrolling in HIST 458 (3247), Making of the American Republic, which meets Tuesdays and Thursdays spring semester from noon to 1:15 p.m.

This specially designed course delves deep into the world of the founders using role-playing games that explore conflict and peace in Pennsylvania’s frontier during the Seven Years’ War, patriotism and loyalty in New York City on the eve of the Revolution, and the writing of a new Constitution in Philadelphia. 

Students play historical characters such as Delaware chief Teedyuscung, tavern keeper Lady de la Montagne, African-American laborer Joseph Bartlet, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, and  . . .  Alexander Hamilton. This is it – don’t throw away your shot!
