Quality course

I love history and this course refreshed my memory of many key significant events and topics throughout the history of the US!
by Vanessa W. on September 21, 2021
Fast and easy course. Thanks Sophia.
by Stephanie H. on September 21, 2021
I enjoyed this class overall. It challenged me, which is good and frustrating at times. I would say, keeping to one person grading assignments would have been helpful for me.
by Rebecca F. on September 21, 2021
Happy it is all completed.
by David T. on September 21, 2021
Great Class.
