HIS 338 Analysis Paper Guidelines and Rubric Overview Throughout this course you will critically examine primary sources. Be sure to read each source you choose to use fully, reading it a first time, then a second, even a third if necessary. As you review each source, ask yourself questions about the source:      Who is the author and what is his or her place in society? What is the purpose of the piece? Why was it written? What values or ideas are behind the content in the source? How are they different from my own? Is the piece credible? Why or why not? Can the piece be used to support a historical debate? Why or why not? Your analysis will not directly answer all these questions. However, the picture that is painted by your response to these questions is essential in constructing your analysis of the source. You will apply these skills in developing two analysis papers in this course. Post any questions you have about the analysis papers to the General Questions discussion topic. Note that you may use any of the sources you used for your analysis papers to support your annotated bibliography and narrative paper. However, if you elect to use these, the sources must specifically support your topic. Guidelines Your analysis papers will demonstrate your ability to investigate:    The main issue or idea behind the assigned source(s) The strengths and weaknesses of the source (origin, author, purpose) The meaning and significance of the issue upon which the sources focus, answering the “why” and the “because” It is important to note that your analysis paper is not an opinion paper and should not contain your opinion on the events, but rather a thorough analysis of the information and historical context specific to the assignment instructions. You will support your analysis with appropriate secondary sources (research and citation), but the analysis should be your own and not reflect others’ interpretation of your selected source(s). Refer to the SNHU Shapiro Library History Guide to assist you not only in researching the author or the period of history in which the assigned source was constructed, but also in searching for and qualifying your supporting resources. Analysis Paper 1 (Due in Module Two) Examine Carol Sheriff’s The Artificial River. How does she characterize the political and social process of building the Erie Canal? Why does she describe the entire enterprise as an example of the “paradox of progress”? Remember, you should be using at least two other resources (primary or secondary) to support your analysis. This means your completed paper will have a total of three resources, at least one of them a primary resource. Analysis Paper 2 (Due in Module Five) Walter Johnson examines the fluid nature of the domestic slave trade and its role in shaping a culture of slavery. Central to this culture was the fundamental reality that the slave person was a commodity to be bought and sold as the market demanded. Describe the effects of the practice of slave trading on the actors involved. How did the domestic slave trade help create the identities of the slave, the slaveholder, and the slave trader? Remember, you should be using at least two other resources (primary or secondary) to support your analysis. This means that your completed paper will have a total of three resources, at least two of them primary resources. Rubric Analysis paper assignments should follow these formatting guidelines: 2–3 pages, double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, one-inch margins, and citations in Turabian format.

Introduction
Domestic slave trade as articulated by Walter Johnson played a significant role in shaping
the slavery culture given that his work ‘Soul by Soul’ is based on the 19th century slave
narratives1. Slave trade was considered a business like any other with an aim of generating
income. Since the implementation of the international trade ban in 18082, the domestic slave
trade became the new venture that ended up forming a significant part of the United States
economy. For this reason, there emerged various slave markets that simply operated by treating
human beings like any other market commodity that can be sold in showrooms as stated by
Johnson (2009) and whose prices vary just like any other commodity on sale3.
The effects of the practice of slave trading on the actors involved
“In the figure of the slave trader were condensed the anxieties of slaveholding society in
the age of capitalist transformation: paternalism overthrown by commodification, honor
corrupted by interest, and dominance infected with...
