Welcome to Mr. Largy's 8th Grade American History class page! Here you will be able to find links to homework and other important class documents. The American History I course covers the early years of American History, spanning the time of discovery through the post-Civil War Reconstruction Era. The purpose of our study is to understand the lessons that history serves to teach us to become better prepared for high school and then on to college, career, and civic life. Our goal is not to memorize dates and random facts, but to become well-rounded citizens, drawing on the wisdom of the past to become better decision makers for the future.

"History is not a burden on the memory but an illumination of the soul." 

Lord Acton
