2629 - Six Ways of Commerce and Migration in England's Southeastern Colonies, 1585-1787
This course will trace a half dozen ancient routes of commerce and migration in the Southeastern US. In doing so it will illustrate the interplay between economics, geography, and politics in establishing transportation infrastructure in pre-modern times, which is to say, in the age of muscle powered land transportation. It should also illuminate the commercial essence of transportation matrices that lend themselves to migration. We will examine how people moved east of the Appalachian chain of mountains, particularly in the case of the European movement into the Carolinas. The class may take field trips to examine local trading paths. Lecture (plus Questions); Facilitated Discussion
