American History Before 1877


-Discuss the experience of the three major “minority groups” in our American History textbook and how they were excluded from republicanism: Women, Native Americans, and African Americans. Include a discussion of the following terms in your response: desegregation, domesticity, franchise, Manifest Destiny, manumission, republican motherhood, republicanism, suffrage. These terms are in alphabetical order, so they should appear in the proper narrative order in your response. Refer to Henretta’s glossary for definitions and locations within the text.
-The long essay would be a traditional essay that typically five paragraphs long.
-The first paragraph should introduce the topic and state the student’s position / answer to the question. It should contain between three-five (3-5) complete sentences, including the thesis statement for the essay.
-The second, third, and fourth paragraphs are the body paragraphs. Each body paragraph should contain between three-five (3-5) sentences, including the topic sentence (first sentence of the body paragraph, states a main point that supports the thesis) and at least two-three (2-3) specific examples per main point.
-The fifth and final paragraph should begin with a restatement of the thesis. It should be three-five (3-5) complete sentences, and include a brief summary/conclusion of the student’s answer to the essay question.
-It is essential, particularly in the survey courses, for students to provide cites and footnotes for their work.
-Citations must adhere to the Chicago Style format but perfection is not expected.
-Be sure to include every term indicated in your given question. Make it a coherent argument.
-DO NOT submit a glossary. You are expected to create your own informed interpretation of American history via navigation of the given terms.
