Writing Subject Options

Welcome!  This LibGuide is designed to point you to library resources that will help you succeed on your research paper.  After choosing a topic, please go through all the tabs to find links to helpful sources.

1.  Explore and discuss the differences how and why the Northern and Southern Colonies were settled.  Explain how these differences eventually lead to views that differ so greatly that they will be settled only by a civil war.

 2.  Explore the impact of what was going on internationally and domestically for Britain and France at the time of the American Revolution.  What impact do these factors have on the options available and chosen for both?. 

 3.  Explain the major philosophical differences that existed between the writers of the Constitution and how they are reflected in the articles of the Constitution and the first ten amendments.

 4. Individual choice – must be related to American history, pre 1840, and approved by the instructor.

 5. Some have contended that the American experience during the American Revolution is the same as the North Vietnamese during the Vietnam War.  Compare and contrast the political, societal, and military situation (both good and bad) during and following the Vietnam war with the events that  transpired during our American revolution. Consider the question from both the domestic and international perspectives.

 NOTE: ALL SUBJECT OPTIONS, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF #5, MUST FOCUS ON THE TIME FRAME OF THIS CLASS  (COLONIAL – 1840).
