What caused the American Civil War and how did the North prevail? In approximately 800 well-chosen words (5 paragraphs), critically analyze several of the following sources to answer this question: DO NOT forget to write about both the CAUSE first! In your essay answer the question by analyzing the primary sources listed. Use direct quotes from the texts to help craft your answer and to also support it. Make these selections wisely and include those that interest you most and help you answer the question. Remember, no argument will be convincing if there is no evidence to reinforce what is being stated. Format: Your essays should be typed, double spaced and in a size 12 font that is appropriate for a formal paper. Do not use generally informal words like I or me. Instead, let the sources do the talking. This should help to keep your paper formal. Example Instead of: “I argue that the legacy of the United States in the 1950s is commonly overgeneralized and underappreciated. To me this era was not the epitome of homogenization and conformism but a time of resistance that culminated into revolt.” Do This: According to the primary sources obtained, read and analyzed the legacy of the United States is commonly overgeneralized and underappreciated. The sources make it apparent that this era was not the epitome of homogenization and conformism but a time of resistance that culminated into revolt. Citation Requirements: Be sure to ALWAYS cite the source after using direct quotes or paraphrases. Use the title of the source or the author’s name as a reference. The purpose behind the citation is so the reader can always reference and quickly find where it is you received this information. If you are currently using a citation style in another course and would like to apply it to this essay that is fine with me. Just be sure it is an approved academic style (MLA, APA, Chicago etc.) SOURCES: https://alamo.instructure.com/courses/1183407/files/143209462/download?verifier=W5QqBuUD2v7aH7SRJzwm18Jwa5EBYiEU7HyNeMed&wrap=1 https://alamo.instructure.com/courses/1183407/files/143209456/download?verifier=ZV1nlCi6exYoUdJFD0007pvM80CyoKe4PVZZfFBc&wrap=1 https://alamo.instructure.com/courses/1183407/files/143209485/download?verifier=4Je2pqgBoLEoq4tOv6nosZehDRbYMawyUfZd4bHb&wrap=1 https://alamo.instructure.com/courses/1183407/files/143209463/download?verifier=jNVIw9exVjMj6e7PphF54BaD5mpiBNUXMoPUmKhu&wrap=1 https://alamo.instructure.com/courses/1183407/files/143209447/download?verifier=0NECLoZsJnBoFsidlcf0EM6zDMiJuzfTpQl2CcdH&wrap=1 https://alamo.instructure.com/courses/1183407/files/143209458/download?verifier=3XnzJNb8zDr9ZqoDtv5o7h5cGptuEevF7f5BXhT7&wrap=1 Copy and past urls in browser for PDF Last source text book John Hollitz, “Grand Theory, Great Battles, and Historical Causes: Why Secession Failed” [CH12]
