U.S. History/u.s


In what way did Americans across the nations begin to share common experiences?

I'm not sure what time period you are talking about here, but colonists generally shared common experiences of developing a working community from the wilderness, dealing with local Indian tribes, facing difficult winters with little food, growing apart from those in the old country and other things.  There were limits on the ability to trade or to buy manufactured goods.  There were disputes over property rights, religious disputes, and other matters that led to arguments as well.

I can answer just about any question on early American History. My specialties are the American Revolution through the Civil War/Reconstruction. I also have greater expertise in matters relating to military, political or legal history.


I have lectured at George Washington University regarding the Civil War, as well as several elementary school Civil War demonstrations. I was also a member of a Civil War reenactment group for about 10 years.
