    What we are currently working on in class: Period 4 (1800 -- 1848) 

    We started in the late 1400s and are now in the 1800s. Period 4 covers the presidencies of Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren, William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, and James K. Polk. This time period also covers the War of 1812, the Marshall Court, the Era of Good Feelings, the Market Revolution, westward expansion and territorial gains, organize labor, the institution of slavery in the United States, and a reform movement including abolition. The nation is growing in population and size in Period 4! It is developing a naitonal identity as we emerge from the War of 1812.
