America and its Highwire Act with History

« back to classes page
As a student of American history I have often marveled at the good fortune that our country has had regarding traversing momentous times in our existence. What if Washington had allowed his sick and exhausted troops, in 1782, to march on Philadelphia (like they wanted to do) and take over the government because they hadn't been paid in years? What if John Adams and not Thomas Jefferson had been president when the opportunity to purchase Louisiana from Napoleon came along? What if someone other than Abraham Lincoln was president during the Civil War? What if Woodrow Wilson wasn't president at the end of World War I when the opportunity for world peace was at hand? What if FDR wasn't president when our greatest national economic crisis burst upon the scene? These are just some of the points I would discuss in class.
