Identify who or what you believe to be the most important person or event that we have covered in this course. Your essay should explain in detail why this person or event is so significant. This should not simply be a biography or book report. I am looking for analysis and critical thinking. Your essay should also explain how American History would have been dramatically different if this person never existed or the event never occurred.
Your essay question will relate to information covered in the readings between weeks 5 – 8. Your essay should be a minimum of 5 pages (does not include documentation), but should not exceed 7 pages. Your essay must include documentation using MLA Style. The grading rubric can be found in a link under TABLE OF CONTENTS. Assistance can be provided in the Effective Writing Center.
