As I know many of our colleagues are devotees of that premier institution of higher education Hillsdale College, and in the probably unlikely event that those of us who love that College and everything it stands for may not already know this, I would like to share the good news that it is now offering a new course, based on Wilfred McKay’s new text, on the actual, not the product of Marxists like Howard Zinn, history of America.
Here is the course description:
The Great American Story: A Land of Hope
This course explores the history of America as a land of hope founded on high principles. In presenting the great triumphs and achievements of our nation’s past, as well as the shortcomings and failures, it offers a broad and unbiased study of the kind essential to the cultivation of intelligent patriotism.
It is described as a “free” online course, but one is prompted to make a contribution before logging into the course. If the content is anything even approaching the quality of the trailer, it would be, as an old friend was fond of saying, “cheap at twice the price!”
Enjoy! JimPublished in
