Welcome back folks! I hope you had a restful and enjoyable break. This week in U.S. History, we begin our chrono-thematic exploration of government in the United States. Although our studies will by no means conclude this topic, we will seek to get a good understanding of the general framework of government in the United States. Where did this framework come from? How has government changed over time?
