Students must write a research paper–using both primary and secondary sources–that answers the following question:
In American historiography, Marxist historians consider the Cold War an attempt by the U.S. to establish economic hegemony, while Revisionist historians blame individual personalities, namely Stalin and Truman. Might there be some other explanation for explaining the Cold War? Do you think the Cold War was inevitable? If so, what were the factors that made the Cold War conflict between the U.S. and the Soviet Union unavoidable?
Make sure you have a thesis (a general argument) and provide examples and details from your sources to support your answer (please refer to the rubric).
The length of the paper should be 5-6 pages (approximately 1500-1700 words not including citations).
The paper must be typed in Times New Roman 12-point font and double-spaced.
You must provide at least 4 outside sources (besides using the appropriate chapters in Roark and Johnson), two of which must be primary sources.
All sources must be correctly cited using the Chicago Manual of Style. You must also provide a separate Bibliography at the end of your paper.

Book: American Crucible: Race and Nation in the Twentieth Century Gary Gerstle
Directions
Assignment: Students are expected to write one 4-5 page essays which result from students investigating, analyzing, and evaluating the historical periods and/or themes discussed in class.
Purpose: To develop the student’s power of judgment by studying the past not merely as a collection of facts but as a human narrative with meaning that calls for interpretation and value judgments.
Style: The essay will be 1300 to 1500 words long (roughly 4-5 pages if you have 1” margins, 12 font, Times New Roman, and double-spaced). Essays less than 1300 words receive an entire letter grade deduction (See Rubric for specific directions). All research papers are to be typed using Times New Roman, 12 pt font with standard one-inch margins. Papers should be double-spaced and make use of footnotes to cite texts. Parenthetical references are not to be used. Papers should include a works cited page with at least five primary sources used by students to prove the essay thesis.
Questions Relevant for first half of class:
Your essay should provide an answer and evidence to prove your answer (main idea or thesis) to one of the set of questions below. Make certain you utilize at least FIVE primary sources to prove the validity of your thesis (main idea).
Q1: What did it mean to be a minority in the US during 1865-1921? What is US diplomacy during 1865-1929? Where did race relations domestically and US diplomacy intersect during 1865-1921?

* Cherokee Constitution: https://www.digitalhistory.uh.edu/active_learning/explorations/indian_removal/cherokee_constitution.cfm
* U.S. Constitution: https://www.archives.gov/founding-docs/constitution
Compare and contrast the Cherokee Constitution with the U.S. Constitution. What areas of similarity do you see? What are the key differences? Be sure to use specifics from the posted excerpt. If you just summarize from another website, you will lack the details you need. It will also be obvious if you are referring to segments that are not even in the excerpt provided. Note that the excerpt only has part of the Cherokee Constitution so observations on how it is missing some parts are not relevant because it is just an excerpt, not the entire text.
As a quick note of explanation, the excerpt discusses the ownership of Cherokee land. Here is an explanation of how it works: any citizen of the Cherokee Nation is able to claim an unused portion of the Cherokee Nation for themselves. In other words, if nobody else is using it, then they may use that land and they will keep whatever they grow or produce on that land. The land, however, is still the common property of the Cherokee Nation, meaning it belongs to all Cherokees. As such, no Cherokee person may sell the land. Now, if a Cherokee decides to move to another part of the Cherokee Nation, they may sell the improvements on the land–homes, barns, other buildings–to a fellow Cherokee but they still cannot sell the land itself.

STUDENTS: Over the past year or so, many students have expressed an interest in learning more about LGBTQ+ history. I have finally found a reading that is objective and informative. All questions/answers in your assignment are based on the “big” reading, “Stonewall Riots,” as well as two short readings linked within the major article, “7 Facts About the Stonewall Riots and the Fight for LGBTQ Rights,” and “How Activists Plotted the First Gay Pride Parades.” For your convenience, I have all of the links separately (below), as well. The questions following the links are based on information in these three linked articles.

Prepare a 1,000-1,500-word essay exploring your narrowed topic and thesis as well as utilizing the primary and secondary sources from your annotated bibliography.
Give your paper a title.
Provide in-text. end note style citations according to the The Chicago Manual of Style. For example, place the number of the citation in parenthesis at the end of the sentence, as shown below:
In 1814, Andrew Jackson defeated the British in the decisive Battle of New Orleans. Later, Jackson assaulted the people of New Orleans, too. By the time he left, most New Orleanians despised the man (1). Jackson’s degradations did not end with New Orleans, though. Later in life, following the end of his presidency, the one-time hero and long-time conspiracy theorist fell into bankruptcy and faced the prospect of losing his home, the Hermitage, to foreclosure. Jackson managed to save his house by bribing members of the Tennessee legislature to pass an act allocating taxpayer funds to pay off his mountainous debts in exchange for the Hermitage’s deed. True to his low character, however, Jackson demanded and won the right to live in there, rent free, for the remainder of his life, making Andrew Jackson the only former US president to end up living in government subsidized housing (2)

Fight, fight, fight! War over. The Spanish-American War was fairly short. Most A

Fight, fight, fight! War over. The Spanish-American War was fairly short. Most Americans supported the war and the idealistic goal of freeing Cuba. After the war, came the issue that not all Americans agreed upon: whether or not to sign the Treaty of 1898. To support the treaty meant support of America becoming an imperialist power and not all Americans believed that was a good idea. For example, while Mark Twain (the famous author) loved the war, he said that if the nation signed the treaty, the nation should replace the stars on the flag with skulls and cross bones.
For this week’s forum, take a close look at the terms of the Treaty of 1898 and its implications for America becoming a world power, exercising imperialist policies. Consider how signing it will change the nation. Consider why some people supported it and some people opposed it.
For this week’s discussion, you will take on a persona and pretend to be someone who was alive at the time. It does not need to be a real person living at the time. Be detailed in the persona you create. For instance, consider factors such as age, gender, socio-economic standing, political party affiliation, occupation, race/ethnicity/national origin, year of arrival in the Americas, which state one lived in, where in the state (city, rural, etc.) one lived, friends and family members, and anything else you deem pertinent. Reveal these details in your narrative.
For your argument, write a letter or a journal diary entry or a newspaper article (be creative!) that explores your persona’s position of someone who signed the Treaty of 1898 and why “you” feel the way that you do. Be sure to explain why you are signing the Treaty amd how it impacts America’s future as an imperialist power [Remember that you are taking on an assigned persona – not sharing your own personal opinion on the topic of American Imperialism.]
