Hillsdale College Constitution Courses and Reader

Scene at the Signing of the Constitution of the United States - Howard Chandler Christy
Hillsdale College is a liberal arts college in Michigan, one of whose claims to fame is that it takes no federal funding. A while back, they offered a free 10-week online course on the United States Constitution: Constitution 101. They recently started a second course, Constitution 201, which covers the rise of the Progressive movement in this country. And now the accompanying reader for both courses is also available online.

I've gone through the first course and have started the second, and everything has been extremely well done. If you are interested in these two contending philosophies of government, I would absolutely recommend these lectures.
