Greetings all! I have been posting updates on Twitter of late chronicling the progress of my next web-course: The American Civil War. I am very pleased to announce that the launch date is May 14, 2016. The course includes nearly forty video lectures and other projects covering military, social, political, and economic aspects of the conflict.
I am most excited to offer this course to my founding web-students for a 50% discount off the already reasonable price. You won’t find this deal anywhere but through this site – and the offer goes away on launch day. So you had better get on the stick. Here’s what you need to do:
ONE – be a current student or enroll now in either my Gettysburg or Reconstruction Era web-course for the regular discounted price available only from Keith Harris History.
TWO – sign up to be part of the Keith Harris History CREW so I can be sure to get you the info you need.
Get that all squared away and on launch day you will receive your discount code via email. And that’s it. Easy right?
Hello all – well, at long last, my on-line journal, The Americanist Independent: A Monthly Journal of United States History is go for launch. If I do say so myself I am extremely proud of the first issue. Naturally, I want you to subscribe – and become a charter member. Get in early, so to speak, and be one of the cool kids.
Since I am sure you want to know…the first issue includes an engaging study by Damian Shiels on the use of technology and visualizing Irish soldiers in the American Civil War.
In addition, Keith McCall offers a fantastic look at the development of slavery databases using 20th century slave narratives.
Samantha Upton boldly takes on Drew Gilpin Faust in her study of the elite white women of Boydton, Virginia during the Reconstruction Era.
And finally, Damien Drago discusses his innovative approach to teaching history and engaging fourth and fifth graders by using music in the classroom.
I think you will really enjoy this on-line experience. Please note that I will be adding new features (including a video series) all the time, so check back frequently. And keep in mind – The Americanist Independent is entirely interactive. There is a forum and a comments section where you can leave your two cents. Let me just say in advance: welcome and thank you for subscribing.
