New York State History has been a regular offering every two years at Mount Saint Mary College, Newburgh, New York, for as long as I can remember. Enrollments have been high, at least thirty per year.  We use
Ellis as a text, permission to photocopy has been obtained from Cornell U. Press.  We also use Gaile on the Constitutional History of New York.  The course only goes as far as the Civil War, with some emphasis
on social and economic history after that period.  It is too difficult to cover the entire history of the state in one semester.
