Genre: History

The American Revolution entailed some remarkable transformations--converting British colonists into American revolutionaries, and a cluster of colonies into a confederation of states with a common cause--but it was far more complex and enduring than the fighting of a war. As John Adams put it, "The Revolution was in the Minds of the people... before a drop of blood was drawn at Lexington"--and it continued long past America's victory at Yorktown. This course will examine the Revolution from this broad perspective, tracing the participants' shifting sense of themselves as British subjects, colonial settlers, revolutionaries, and Americans.

How can someone find their passion? What does it take to truly be Happy? We already understand there are different answers for different people on what 'medium' they used to create success for themselves in these areas, yet we want to go deeper. We want to know (and so does the world) what were the actual STEPS that today's leaders took toward success and the sequence of events that took place to make it all come together.
