The Trans-Mississippi West

HIST 561 / 361 (3)

Connell-Szasz, Hutton, Truett.

This course is concerned with the exploration, settlement, and exploitation of the trans-Mississippi West, 1820-1900, and the resultant conflict between white Americans and Native Americans over the land.  The Indian Wars, the cattle empire, the mining booms, the movement of great numbers of people of various origins and ethnicities, and the development of the great American myth of the Wild West will all be covered.  This is not regional history as such, but is rather national history in a broad regional setting
