Assignment 2.1: Liberty Challenged in Nineteenth Century America Thesis and Outline Due Week 7 and worth 50 points

America became a free independent nation. With the signing of the Treaty of Paris in 1783, the former mother country, England, recognized that its children, the colonies, were now on their own. A constitutional republic was birthed, and thus the challenges began. Slavery, the “Peculiar Institution,” was a monumental issue facing the country. Would it die or would it survive and possibly take a nation divided with it? This sectionalism followed Americans up into the Civil War. Dissect this….

Dealing with diversity in America from reconstruction through the 1920’s.

After the Civil War, the United States had to recover from war, handle western expansion, and grapple with very new economic forms. However, its greatest issues would revolve around the legacies of slavery and increasing diversity in the decades after the Civil War. Reconstruction was partly a period of military occupation of the south by the northern victors. Former slaves now had freedom and new opportunities but faced old prejudices and rapidly forming new barriers. Immigrants from Europe and Asia came in large numbers but then….

History Reading Worksheet #________/Chapter_______

The purpose of this worksheet is to give you a condensed version of the most important historical or central concepts within a given chapter. A “main idea” is a chief point an author is making about a particular historical period, or how she/he generally explains the change taking place over time. Typical historical writing is comprised of main ideas and supportive evidence that backs up an author’s claim, or interpretation of history. Your task is to record main ideas, not supportive evidence . You can paraphrase or use direct quotes that reflect or state a main point from the assigned chapter. A “response” is an original reaction or engagement with the text. This can be: a question , a connection to other material, state the significance, or importance . Worksheets must be typed, and main ideas….

Analyze the rise of the United States to a world “superpower” and how that status has shaped its internal developments in recent decades.

The previous assignments focused on domestic matters in US history. This last assignment explores America’s international role in recent decades. By the mid-20th century, the United States had become the dominant force in international relations. Some have argued that the United States’ military functions as the world’s “police.” This assignment covers the manner in which this shift occurred and the consequences the United States faces as a result of its status as “policeman of the world.” One can identify early steps this direction well before World War II, but in this paper focus on the period from the 1940s to the present. Take one of the positions as suggested below, draw from the sources listed, and present a paper with specific examples and arguments to demonstrate the validity of your position.

What were the key differences between the First New Deal and the Second New Deal?

From last week, you could see some of the concerns of spending in the 1920s. This week, we will look at the Great Depression, from a stock market crash, federal government involvement or lack there of, changes in leadership, and methods to generate change. I think it is obvious we never want to face these times again. Thus, I think if we learn from this history we can try to use our political, economic, and social power to protect the US from ever facing such harsh times again.

Please use OpenStax chapter 25/26 or Exploring American Histories Chapter 22 to explore the time period. You can use outside resources as well. You need to answer a question from List A and a question from List B as your….

Compare the data given for men’s wages and women’s wages.

Organizing Women Workers. Leonora M. Barry (1887)



Upon the strength of my observation and experience I would ask of officers and members

of this Order that more consideration be given, and more thorough educational measures be

adopted on behalf of the working-women of our land, the majority of whom are entirely

ignorant of the economic and industrial question which is to them of such vital importance;

and they must ever remain so while the selfishness of their brothers in toil is carried to such

an extent as I find it to be among those who have sworn to demand equal pay for equal

work. Thus far in the history of our Order that part of our platform has been but a mockery

of the principles intended.
