With the conclusion of the American Revolution, the Gulf Coast remained a borderland, a world with shifting and colliding political and cultural realities from Florida to Texas. The course will examine some of the major political players and the most significant personalities from the end of the Revolution until the United States' acquisition of Florida.

 

This course follows "The American Revolution from the Perspective of the Gulf Coast and Points West." We will use the same approach of "mini-biographies" to understand this fascinating and volatile world in the Republic's early history.

*Students may register, even if they did not take the the first course.

Fee: $50.00
Hours:9.00
