Question Description

3. ESSAYS ON MONOGRAPHS. Each student shall craft a five page essay in response to the following questions: (These essays should by typed-double spaced, no more than 12 point font, one-inch margins all around). A monograph is a separate dissertation or essay on a single subject or an aspect of it

1) The Civil Rights movement had many sources and catalysts. According to Stephen Whitfield, how did the Emmett Till case generate attention and precisely how did it change the movement for Civil Rights in the nation as a whole? What does the author reveal about the social structure of the South during this period, and how does the rest of the country react to this story? Be sure to be specific and avoid overgeneralizations, such as “it had a big impact.” This paper is due at the end of Unit One prior to taking the first exam.

2) Although David Halberstam’s book deals with Vietnam prior to what most Americans consider the true beginning of the war, his work suggests there was little reason to be optimistic about the outcome of American involvement. What were the major problems with the effort of South Vietnamese and Americans in preventing an eventual North Vietnamese takeover of the country? And how did American policy during the Cold War lead to that involvement? This paper is due at the end of Unit Two prior to taking the second exam. Since it deals with the Vietnam War, you may want to read this early on in Unit Two.

4. TERM PAPER. Each student shall draft a term paper, and will consult with the instructor on the topic for the paper. It will address a narrowly focused topic on some aspect of US history since 1950. It should include a description of the event or person under study and spend at least part of the paper analyzing the varied opinions offered by journalists, politicians, or historians.
It should contain a minimum of ten pages of text and use the endnote citation form described in Turabian, Manual for Writers. These must make wholesale use of available primary sources and address a controversy in the scholarship in the recent era. You must obtain my informal

The brutal murder of Emmett Till and his body thrown into the river by the two white
men led to the rise of Civil Right Movement in the United States. The court verdict rendered
by an all-white jury angered many about the actions of the court systems (Anderson, 2015).
Despite having enough evidence to justify that the two perpetrators of the killing were guilty,
they stated that the defendant was not guilty. The court ruling angered many of the black
The death of Emmett Till was a good recipe for the civil right revolution in the south
and all part of the country. Till's mother did everything to ensure that the plight her son
passed through was known in all parts of the world (Pollack, 2017). She, for instance, staged

expression by Dylan was to show that they were dissatisfied with was going on in the society.
