United States History: A Textbook

This textbook is an adaptation of the OpenStax US History textbook. It is available on OpenStax for reading in their interface, downloading as an app or PDF, and even ordering a print copy. The edition of the textbook here on my website is adapted and excerpted for the purposes of a high school US History course, so if you use the OpenStax edition you won't have my excerpts, and you may miss out on additional information where I do add it. If you are ever looking for more detail or context, you can likely find it there.1

All of your reading assignments will be available here.

  • 1. Also recommended for additional reading for the curious is the American Yawp by Stanford University.
