HIST 263 - Founding of U.S. Civilization: Home

This guide is for John Schlotterbeck's Fall 2014 course.


This guide suggests resources for researching a person, event, or topic on US history from Columbus to the War of 1812. It covers both reference & secondary sources good for background, and primary sources.

That's a really, really broad sweep of time to cover, so drop me a note if you don't see something you want or need!
