US History to 1877

US History to 1877

This is a 3-part exam. Follow the directions below. Please do not copy or paste from the Internet or copy from another source. You may use your textbook but all work MUST be your words — not someone else’s. Please submit as an attachment. Part A: Choose 10 terms from below and write 4 sentences explaining what the term is and its historical significance. (40 pts.) 1. Aztecs 2. Louisiana Purchase 3. The Glorious Revolution 4. Puritans 5. Stono uprising 6. The Great Compromise 7. The Whiskey Rebellion 8. The Missouri Compromise 9. Manifest Destiny 10. Anaconda Plan 11. Gettysburg Address 12. Emancipation Proclamation 13. Mayflower Compact 14. Prince Henry of Portugal 15. Raid on Harpers Ferry 16. Antietam Part B: You are to think back over the course of US History from European exploration to 1877. Think about the individuals who have been a part of that history. 1. List 10 historical figures (U.S. history to 1877) that you would invite to dinner. These individuals must be part of American history, not simply an influence on American history. After each name, list 3 clear and distinct reasons why you would choose that person. (this part is worth 30 pts.) 2. After you have all 10 listed along with the 3 reasons, think about what is occurring in our country today. Choose one issue of today that is significant in the United States. Your task is to find a solution to that issue, based on how you think your 10 member committee would solve the problem. Your solution is based on a plan created by all members of the team, NOT individual solutions. This means that all members of your committee have a part in the solution and you must describe the contribution each would make. Please remember that their individual contributions must be realistic. In other words, their contributions must be in line with actions they have taken in the past. You cannot simply ?fit? each person into your plan if the actions you are assigning are not something that person would more than likely do or has not done. Again, it must be realistic and have a historical basis (this is worth 30 pts.) Remember to cite your sources, proofread for mechanical errors (spelling, punctuation, grammar, etc.) and make sure you send the correct attachment. There will be no resubmissions for accidentally submitting the wrong assignment, attachment, etc.
