Understanding 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 the historian.
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

primary sources. Primary sources are documents or

artifacts that were created at the time of a historical

event or by someone who personally experienced a

historical event. Primary sources can be newspaper or

magazine articles, books, letters, speeches,

photographs, oral histories, paintings or any other

record of a historical event. The best place to find

scholarly sources is the Ashford Library’s research

databases and ebook collection.

You will create an annotated bibliography. To create

an annotated bibliography, list each source in full APA

reference format. Then, beneath each source write a

brief (one or two paragraph) explanation of the

important information in the source and how you plan

to use it in your paper. The annotations must be in your

own words. It is not acceptable to copy and paste the

abstract or any other text. You must have ann
