The requirements are

  • Your essay should be approximately 3 pages, double-spaced (~ 750 words.)
  • As evidence to support your argument, you must demonstrate your familiarity with Exploring American Histories (Chapters 14 to 19) by citing specific passages and page numbers.
  • You are also required to include and analyze at least three (3) primary source documents that you have discussed in your respective Friday Discussion Sections.

The paper itself has two prompts, but describing the political and social impacts of the end of reconstruction seem easier than the gilded age.
