Ozarks' History Introductory Course


Exploring our Ozarks' History is something I have enjoyed over the years. Beginning this June, I will teach a four-class Introduction Course called, Ozarks’ History: From the Louisiana Purchase to Pioneering the Plateau (1803-1859). 

The classes will be taught on the ASU-MH Campus and begin on Thursday, June 6th, from 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm. The classes will continue for the next three Thursdays.

Course Description:

Locked remotely in the heartland of America, the Ozark Plateau has been viewed with suspension & ignorance. Yet, the Ozarks is a vast tapestry that has woven diverse people groups into its history for over 200 years. From its Native American tribes to its European explorers & pioneers, we will study the Ozarks and discover the war, feuds, reunions & baptisms that give the region its distinctive character. In this course, we will explore the origins of its name, discover its topography, flora & fauna, and roam its rivers, prairies & villages. This course will give a foundation to understand the many catalysts that changed the Ozarks over the last two centuries. Additionally, we will uncover available sources that will deepen our understanding of the Ozarks’ History.
