The history of the USA as an interactive journey through time: From Civil War to a Unified Nation
Immerse yourself in the history of the United States. This book will take you on a journey through time to the Native Americans, who are forcibly expelled from their land on the grounds of “civilization”, and to the slaves, millions of whom toil in the fields of Southern plantations. What does it mean to be a slave? How does the political conflict over slavery escalate to civil war?
This book contains an unabridged version of Module 3 from the original book The History of the USA 1.
As a Multi-Touch book, it incorporates films, photo galleries, and reading comprehension quizzes to bring the past to life. It is perfect for all those who share in the excitement of history.
