Taking a survey history course opened up my view on the history department and what a history major would mean at Davidson College. From this course I have taken an appreciation for not only American History, but for insightful, provocative, and researched discussions surrounding the topic. This being my first collegiate level history course, I have had an incredible and personally unique experience learning the subject material. However, the material itself felt like it stayed railed on the track of White Anglo Saxon male US history, and only occasionally addressing Slavery and especially Native American relation, while conversations in class tended to drift towards these topics. Overall I had a fantastic time in this class and am very happy I chose it to be my first experience with History at Davidson College!!!
