Choose from one of the topics below and review its history from 1865 to the present. Select six specific
events or developments that span the years covered by this course. Based on their impact on the topic
and write a thesis. Your thesis should summarize the main conclusion that you drew while researching
your topic and that you will support by creating a logical argument based on evidence (Sources).
In your paper, make sure to connect each of the events or developments you have chosen back to your
main thesis. Ensure you organize your paper effectively to create a flow either along chronologically or
thematic lines. For example a paper about African Americans might choose the Harlem Renaissance and
the Black Power Movement as two of its events. In that case, the paper would provide basic information
about the two movements. It would explain what each one revealed about the role of African Americans
in broader American society in, respectively, the 1920s. And in the late 1960s, explain how and why the
roles of African Americans in the 1920s differed from their roles in the late 1960s, and explain how
events in the 1920s may have contributed to developments in the later decade.
