Single American Nation
When the first world war began, African American leaders pressed the
government to provide Black men the right to go to combat to prove
their devotion to their country. Hoping that their service would lay
a stake on citizenship that the nation would have no choice but to
honor, the “New Negro” of the 1920s adopted a more militant
stance toward civil rights. The civil rights struggle envisioned at
the time, however, made few concrete gains. Discrimination and
African American leaders
responded to the second world war much as they had to the first,
offering their services while expecting recognition in return. They
intended to fight a “Double-V” campaign against fascism abroad
and racism at home. They helped to kill fascism abroad; racist
policies at home survived, but only for a time. Less than a decade
after the war ended, the Brown case struck down the principle of
“separate but equal” in schools. A grass-roots movement emerged
to challenge discrimination elsewhere. By 1965, nonviolent means had
murdered Jim Crow. Yet, the1960s were nothing if not a violent
decade, marred by war, riots, and assassinations. By the end of the
decade, Americans were as divided in some ways as they had ever been,
and hopes for integration into a single American nation largely gave
way to an emphasis on the unique needs and interests of different
groups within the nation.

After the second world war, the United States embarked on what came
to be known as the Cold War against the Soviet Union. Although the
two sides never fought against each other directly, the Cold War
nonetheless erupted into violence at times in places like Vietnam,
Korea, and Afghanistan. While the Cold War affected U.S. foreign
policy, it also had a significant effect on American

history can be more difficult than many people imagine. Historians
concern themselves not only with what happened but with why it
happened. They analyze and assess a variety of sources, including
primary sources (ones created during the time period the historian is
examining) and secondary sources (ones written by other historians
after the period), to create their own interpretations of the past.
For the Final Paper, students will not only learn about the past, but
also experiment with the interpretive, analytical methodologies of
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 conclusions 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
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 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.
