HIST 505 - History of the Lower Shenandoah Valley

(3cr) This regional course investigates historical development within the national context. It examines geographical features; early explorations and settlement; the colonial influences in migration, politics, and economy; antebellum matters such as slavery, transportation, and cultural manifestations; the American Civil War; Reconstruction, the farmer’s revolt, and industrialization; the limestone and orchard industry; and the 20th-century impact. Some attention is devoted to regional literature as it reflects historical character and biography of major personalities.
