Introduction

 

We are wrapping up our study of the significant events that helped to shape

America. We began with Explorers and Native Americans. Then we learned

about colonists and the Revolutionary War with England. Next we studied

Westward Expansion and the Civil War. Later we learned what it was like to

immigrate to the United States from another country. We talked about the

Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, and World War II. We learned about the

Industrial Revolution and now we are almost through! Let's take a look at

the past few decades and see how they helped to change America.
