An essay question is given below. This question constitutes a controversial issue in the Civil War period. Your job is to be the historian, take a stance on the issue, and use historical evidence from your notes, the textbook, and the primary source book This Fiery Trial to substantiate your argument. You will not be graded on your point of view; but rather, you will be graded on how well you employ historical evidence in order to prove your thesis statement and your supporting arguments. Look back to the historical articles in your Annual Editions text for examples of how historians construct their arguments. Also, I have included a prompt on the rules for good historical essays and a breakdown of a sample historian’s argument regarding Indians. Your essay should be structured in a similar way.
