Write a five to six research paper. You will pick any topic on an event, person or social event that we discussed in class. The topic must be from the Reconstruction (after the U.S. Civil War 1860s) to the late 1980s. In addition, you must mention the importance of why we need to know about such an event, person, or cultural movement. And how it is linked to U.S. History. Also, the research must have a thesis argument to get a full grade.
Sources: You must use at least three to four sources to get full points. Sources can be Internet articles (NO Wikipedia), Newspaper or magazine articles, and books. You can also use the class reading as a source. The Sources are going to help you understand and explain what happened in the United States during that time. I will expect a Bibliography (we will look at how to make one bibliography in class).
Format: The format of the assignment can be written in MLA or Chicago Style. The research must have at least four citations. 12 point Times New Roman format always.
