[Note here are some themes to ponder as you begin to brainstorm. Consider the failures and successes of reconstruction; and/or how did science and technology change American cultural, diplomatic, political, and/or religious ways; how did ideas of “race” influence US policy domestically and/or how did ideas of “race” explain US policy internationally; consider Native American relations with US settlers in western territories and the federal government; how did the United States become a world power in the period from 1877-1921; define the nature of US – imperialism – relations with Cuba, Philippines, Hawaii, and/or China during the late 19th and early 20th century; and what were the experiences of eastern and southern Europeans in the United States during the progressive era.

If you decide to address the questions post World War I: Consider the failures and successes of Wilsonianism (that is, making the world safe for democracy post-1921); the affects of the Great Depression on cultural, economic, political and/or social ways in the US; how did the threat of totalitarianism change the cultural, economic, political and/or social ways of the US; how did atomic weapons change US relations with the world; consider the various strategies used by civil rights activists; how did civil rights (non-violence) relate or not to black nationalism; how did the Korean and Vietnam wars affect the United States; how did the Cold War change US immigration policies; what was the new left and new right; consider what changed in the US during the 1960s and 1970s and/or what remained the same.]

The essay must be 900 to 1200 words long (roughly 3-4 pages if you have 1” margins, 12 font, Times New Roman, and double-spaced). Essays less than 900 words receive an entire letter grade deduction.
