The topics you choose should be a question, which can be turned into an assertive (thesis) statement. For this course, you will write about an event in American Political History. You may choose any timeframe from Colonial American History through the year 2012. Your paper will argue the thesis, by providing information to support your assertion. While your paper will be more focused on a particular event, this should guide your thesis statement(s) and overall paper. Remember, your thesis statement can be more than one sentence. Be sure to back up your premise throughout the paper, and restate your thesis in the conclusion. Your introduction and conclusion should mirror one another.
