What is the purpose of studying American history? What do we gain from doing so?

  • History -

    Think of some of this on your own, but here are a few ideas to get you started. I wouldn't recommend copying it word for word.

    Studying any history allows people to learn from their mistakes. In a history class dedicated to American history, American citizens can develop a closer connection to their culture and roots. This helps create a national identiy, inspiring pride in being an American and promoting nationalism. On the topic of learning from mistakes, investigating events and legislation that were unpopular, such as prohibition, can help people predict the outcomes of modern legislationa and protest movements.
