 Timeline Project
After reviewing the Unit VII materials, you should be familiar with some events that shaped Western Expansion and the Antebellum South. Take a look at the 1793-1857 timeline here. For this assignment, you will pick one of the events identified on the timeline and discuss how that event prompted a change in national philosophies or ideals. In addition to discussing a specific event from the timeline, you will also want to take into consideration how the nation’s views had evolved to the point of the event you choose. Incorporating ideas and related concepts from previous units may help you develop your ideas.
Below are the steps you will need to take in order to successfully complete this assignment. 

Step 1: Choose an event.
Choose an event from the timeline above that interests you the most. Your research will surround this event, so it is important to think about what you want to learn more about. 

Step 2: Conduct research.
Conduct research around the event you chose. For this assignment, you are required to utilize at least one source from the CSU Online Library. Your source can either revolve around the event you chose or it can focus on the philosophies and ideals before/after your event, whichever supports your writing more. Note that you may not find an article specifically addressing both the event you chose and the philosophies surrounding it; in most cases, you will need to use your critical thinking skills to infer the information. You may use more sources if you would like, but those sources cannot include Wikipedia, biography.com, history.com, or other encyclopedias.

Reflect on the change in American life before and after the event you chose. Once you have completed your research, you should sit back to think about what it means to see if you notice any trends and to have a better sense of what you want to convey in your writing. Although it is not required, you may want to develop a short outline to help you organize your thoughts and ideas. Use some of the following prompts to help guide you: Ask yourself about how historical figures and groups related to your event were shaped by this time period and environment. Ask yourself how the lives of the people around before and after the event were impacted. Ask yourself what qualities, ideals, and philosophies you would most like to emphasize, and make sure the facts that you present support it. Find the perfect anecdote to demonstrate these qualities. Step 4: Write your assignment. Your final assignment should include a title page, a minimum of two pages of content, and a reference page. As you are writing, be sure to keep the following in mind: The introduction should engage the reader and clearly present a summary of the main points that clarify your point of view. The introduction should also include a thesis statement. The quality of your writing should demonstrate critical thinking. Organization should clearly present points arranged to illustrate your opening points. Writing should be clear and concise with no spelling, grammatical, or punctuation errors. You must utilize at least one source from the CSU Online Library. APA formatting guidelines should be used for this assignment. If you need additional help, feel free to reach out to a librarian (for questions about using the CSU Online Library) or the CSU Writing Center (for assistance with writing or to request a review of your work). Tips for Library Research When conducting research for your Unit VII assignment, here are some best practices:      For this course, best results may come from the America: History and Life with Full Text database because it has narrowed down the possible choices to one subject. Academic Search Complete is also a good database to use for this assignment. There are other engines you may find useful, but they will pull from a larger and less specific pool of resources. Simplify the search terms: o On a single line, use either “Eli Whitney” or “Cotton Gin” but not both together. You can use both on separate lines. o It can sometimes help to avoid being too specific. With 1846 Wilmot Proviso, the computer is going to search for “1846” and “Wilmot” and “Proviso” because the name is somewhat unique. By leaving off the year, this may help to narrow the potential unwanted choices. Make sure to use quotes around “Wilmot Proviso”; it searches for the words as a phrase instead of individually “Wilmot” and “Proviso.” In addition, if you change the drop down from “Date Newest” to “Relevance,” you will find better results. o Consider alternate terms. With a selection like “1848 National Election,” because the words are so frequently used, you may want to instead use names of key figures for your search. Define what to look for in your search. See the example below for "Compromise of 1850." o o  By using quotation marks, the engine understands “Compromise of 1850” as a single term. By narrowing the field of search to a “SU Subject Terms,” that further specifies your intended results to only the most likely 26 results. Use a subject-specific search engine whenever possible. o How to subject search:  In the drop-down menu to the right of the blank box, change the default to “SU Subject Terms.” Subject searching can give you more exact results. Below is a key word search for “compromise of 1850,” which resulted in 651 results.  By changing “Select a Field” to “SU Subject Terms,” you are able to narrow your results down to articles that just specifically have “compromise of 1850” as a main subject.  After you type in your topic and you have a hit search, you can limit your results further on the left side of the screen by selecting “Refine Results.” The default is “All Results,” but for this project you want to focus on academic journals, magazines, newspapers, and government documents. Avoid “Book Reviews” altogether. 1793 Eli Whitney Cotton Gin 1846 Wilmot Proviso 1848 National Election 1850 Compromise of 1850 1854 Kansas/Nebraska Act 1857 Dred Scott v.

DRED SCOTT V. SANDFORD

Dred Scott v. Sandford-1857

The Dred Scott v. Sandford case is infamous to date. In American culture and American
law, the Dred Scott case is archetypal in symbolizing injustice. Consequently, most lectures
mention the case while examining the Court’s history for protecting slavery. Nevertheless,
lawyers, jurists, historians, and the American public universally condemn it for its racism
(VanderVelde 2015). Dred Scott v. Sandford is the most disgraced case ever decided by the
Supreme Court, and critics widely invoke it while comparing with other failures of justice.
After America introduced slavery to the colonies in 1619, it had undergone numerous
changes, but one phenomenon had not changed in nearly two centuries before Dred Scott’s birththe South’s need for slaves (Herda 2010). Slavery in the South was a way of life. It entirely
depended upon the toil and sweat of enslaved black workers. For Southern slave owners, slavery
was a solution to both a complex socioeconomic structure, which was the basis of the very
existence of the Southern states and cheap labor on working the cotton, rice, and tobacco fields.
Enter Dred Scott, a black slave in Missouri who had yearned for his freedom. Since his
two previous masters, Peter Blow and John Emerson were dead his future was in doubt. He had a
wife and children, and in 1843, Scott’s worst fears came true. Mrs. Emerson lent him and his
family to her brother John Sanford (Herda 2010). Unfortunately, Sanford subjected Dred Scott
and his family to abuse and brutality due to his short temper. Having enough, Dred Scott asked
for his family’s freedom from Mrs. Emerson. He even offered her three hundred dollars for their
freedom, b...
