US History and Government Examination: August 2010

Geography has played a complex role in America history. The Atlantic Ocean has served as a buffer to protect the United States from European Wars, but its proximity to Cuba, however, left it vulnerable to nuclear war during the Cuban missile crisis. Using primary and secondary sources, including maps, class members consider the overall impact geography has had on United States' history. Another prompt examines the role of American presidents in shaping United States history, and multiple choice questions sharpen content and analysis skills.
