Those with a personal interest in history will find two new classes offered by the Lancaster Campus of Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC). Both are designed to give students an overview of events of important times for our country.

Birth of a Nation will be offered Mondays, March 8-22, from 6-8 p.m.. This course will lead participants through the colonization of our country, the war for liberty and founding of a new nation "of the people, by the people and for the people."

This exciting time of American history, with all of its faults, changed the world and offered hope for all that came to our shores.

Participants will discuss those before us who had the great nerve to fight a major power of the world for the ideals of liberty.

The Civil War will be offered Mondays, March 29-April 12, from 6-8 p.m. Participants will learn what brought Americans to the battlefield during the darkest days of the United States. The four years of war over slavery and states' rights nearly split the country forever.

The class will discuss what brought us to the "War between the States," how the land was scarred by battle of a common enemy, and different aspects of reconstruction.

These are just two of many Community Education courses offered at the Lancaster Campus of Harrisburg Area Community College located at 1641 Old Philadelphia Pike. Information may be obtained by calling (717) 358-2901 or accessing the HACC Website below.
