Adjunct instructor Jim Carroll and film producer Peter Giuliano are teaming up to teach a community education course at Arkansas State University - Mountain Home (ASUMH) early in 2020 titled: “From Colonies to Country: The Story of the American Revolution”


The course will examine the British colonies in North America before the Revolution, why and how they were able to unite and successfully defeat the greatest military power on earth at the time and mold themselves into the greatest country the world has ever seen - the United States of America.


All of the classes will be in the Ozark Regional Arts Council conference room at the Vada Sheid Community Development Center on the campus of ASUMH January 7 through March 19, 3 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday.


This is American history made exciting. The course will be a series of lectures and historical movies and audio-visuals that are designed to be fun, informative and patriotic.


The curriculum is based on several books, The British Are Coming by Rick Atkinson, Independence and Almost a Miracle by John Ferling, Washington’s Immortals by Patrick K. O’Donnell and films like Founding Fathers and John Adams.


George Washington, John Adams, Benedict Arnold, Alexander Hamilton, Henry Knox, Nathaniel Greene and other patriots will be featured. Special attention will be paid to the women of the Revolution like Molly Pitcher, Dolly Madison and Deborah Franklin, one of the original advocates of the second amendment in 1765 – 23 years before the Constitution was ratified. And, they won't forget Betsy Ross. As an added bonus, some of the lectures will feature guest speaker (s) from the Mountain Home Captain Nathan Watkins Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.


Just go to the ASUMH website, press the “About” tab, then press on the Community Education link to sign up. Or call 870- 508-6105.


Proceeds go to Scalia Institute of Criminal Justice at ASUMH who visited ASUMH and lectured four years ago.
