Welcome to Mr. Shimmel's 8th Grade American History!

In my 8th grade American History class we will begin our journey with the earliest Americans with the focus on how many of them possibly came to be here.  As we continue on we will join Columbus as he discovers America and the American colonists as they fight for independence.  We will see how Founding Fathers like George Washington helped shape our nation and wrote a new constitution.  We will also encounter the problems our young country has had, most notably the Civil War, and how we have overcome those problems to remain a strong nation.
