History III  covers an astonishing number of wars. First comes the Revolutionary War, the French Revolution, the rise of Napoleon, then the War of 1812, onto the Indian Wars, Civil War, and then the Sepoy Rebellion in British India, followed by the Crimean War to prop up the dying Ottoman Empire. Then come two South American wars, the Franco-Prussian War, the Spanish-American War, the Russo-Japanese War, two Chinese-Japanese wars, the Mexican Revolution, World War I,  the Russian Revolution, the Spanish Civil War, World War II, the Cold War, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and several more. Modern thinkers were great at dreaming up new ways to kill each other, but not so great at diplomacy.

In the U.S. History side, Modern starts with the conflicts that almost tore the U.S. apart. Chapters 4 and 5 cover U.S. History exclusively, following the Civil War from beginning to end. Then came Reconstruction, the great westward migration and the Transcontinental Railroad. The Western Indian Wars get good coverage, as does the Spanish-American War. While covering the great wars of the Twentieth Century, we also cover the Gilded Age, the Roaring Twenties, Prohibition, the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, the Red Scare, the Space Race and much more. 

On the Church History side, we will cover brave Saints who spread Orthodoxy to the places we cover—from Africa to India, China, Japan and more.We will have a Saint Spotlight focusing on particular saints from this time period. Do projects, research, and presentations.
