Welcome, Fall 2015!


Welcome to the course blog for History 152, Section 005, meeting Monday/Thursday, 11:10 AM to 12:25 PM with Dr. Mariel Isaacson.

The course textbooks are Eric Foner's Voices of Freedom: A Documentary History, Volume 2, Fourth Edition and Give Me Liberty! An American History, Volume 2, Fourth Seagull edition. New and used copies are available at Shakespeare and Company, located at 939 Lexington Avenue. You may purchase ebooks if you prefer.

I'm looking forward to meeting you on Thursday, August 27 for our first class meeting!

Have a great summer!


  1. Hi Section 005! Wake up!

  2. Hi Professor, I already have both of those books but in Second Edition, not Fourth. Do I absolutely have to purchase the Fourth Editions?

  3. Hi Dylan,
    You can use any edition of Volume 2 of the textbook (Give Me Liberty), but different editions of Voices of Freedom will have different documents that will not correspond to the required reading assignments.

    1. Okay, thank you very much Professor!



Stay on topic. Your comment should engage with original post or respond to a previous comment

Provide evidence to support your point. Debate/conversation is encouraged, but if you wish to present a convincing argument you will have to support your claim. Make sure that the information you present can be verified and if you refer to an online source provide the link.

Use reputable sources. There is a lot of information available on the internet, but not all of it is trustworthy. Be certain that you can identify the author/creator, whether or not it is a commercial site, the bias of the site and/or its sponsors for any links you provide. Posts that contain links to or information from disreputable sources will be deleted and will not satisfy the assignment requirements.

Use your own words. If you wish to refer to an outside source, provide a link or citation information. Using someone else’s words as your own, or reposting material without identifying the original source/creator constitutes plagiarism.
