This course teaches students about history by having them research and write original works of historical fiction.  The course approaches historical fiction with an emphasis on the "historical."  A paper prepared in this course might be a lousy work of fiction but still a great paper if the historical research and analysis are strong.  But no fictional glitter, however sparkling, can redeem a paper marred by weak historical research and analysis.
