What is our story? How have we grown from Native American societies and early colonial settlements to the modern nation we are today? To understand who we are as a country and a people, we must study American history. This section aims to provide a complete overview of our history as a nation. Links to multiple sources are provided; however the main text provided here comes from the U.S. Department of State's Outline of U.S. History, compiled, revised, and updated by Alonzo L. Hamby, Distinguished Professor of History at Ohio University.
