What is most significant about wwi history?

World War I essentially determined the trajectory of twentieth-century world history, and the conflict had an important impact on American history. The historiography on WWI is immense, with historians (from all over the world) taking a number of different perspectives, contributing different arguments about the significance of the conflict, and examining a wide range of issues and topics.
This discussion asks you to identify and discuss at least one aspect about WWI that you believe historians should focus on. What do you think is the most important story about WWI? If you were writing a history about WWI, what would you write about? What is the experience that students of WWI absolutely need to know about? What is the story that needs to be told? What is most significant about WWI history? What is the “big take away”? Your answer can focus on the American, European, or global historical experience.
Your response to the question(s) needs to first identify in the introduction at least one part of WWI history that you find most interesting/significant—the big takeaway(s). Then the remaining page should explain why. The explanation needs incorporate historical evidence. The discussion should not be a “general history.”
Must also be from 150-200 nothing more or nothing less!

You may not have all of the publication info for all of the readings on canvas, but just cite what you can, giving me enough information to know which of the canvas readings you are citing (in other words, worry less about the format of the citations and more about them conveying which canvas sources you used).

The following TWO essays add up to 100 points. Partial credit will be given for the essays. In order to
receive full credit, you will have to answer the questions fully AND ensure that your essays are wellwritten and well-argued with a clear argument in each (i.e., make sure the first paragraph of each essay
has an easily identifiable thesis statement). You must reference the names and main arguments of at least
TWO primary sources (from Canvas or the Sheets book) and at least ONE secondary source per
essay (i.e., the Henretta textbook). The length of the essays is up to you; just answer the questions in
whatever amount of space is necessary to do so.
Please ensure that all materials are footnoted using University of Chicago/Turabian citations. You may
not have all of the publication info for all of the readings on Canvas, but just cite what you can, giving me
enough information to know which of the Canvas readings you are citing (in other words, worry less
about the format of the citations and more about them conveying which Canvas sources you used). You
may cite class PowerPoints referencing my name, the title of the lecture (see the syllabus), and the date—
but this does NOT count as a secondary source, just supplementary material, and it ought to be used
sparingly.
PLEASE ANSWER BOTH ESSAYS
Question 1 – 50 POINTS
The Reconstruction era (1865-77) represented a moment of hope and possibility for freedmen
and freedwomen. In short order, however, those gains were reversed in the South by the advent
of “Jim Crow.” Make an argument that describes this process and considers the following:
 The 3 phases of Reconstruction (presidential, congressional, “radical”) and the practical
implications of the 15th Amendment (was it effective?);
 The composition of the Reconstruction-era Republican Party in the South, and a
description of how it was marginalized and by whom;
 The importance of the 1876 presidential election and resulting compromise; and
 The racial and gender hierarchy of the Jim Crow era: what was this hierarchy, and what
implications did it have for the sexual and societal status of white women vs. non-white women,
and for the possibility of reform in the Jim Crow South?
Question 2 – 50 POINTS
Much of the period we have studied so far (1865 through the New Deal) has featured a
protracted struggle between the “producers” (farmers and workers) and the “big capitalists”
(industrialists, bankers). Make an argument that tracks this battle across three time periods we
have studied: the Populist era, the Progressive era, and the New Deal era. Make sure to address
the following bullet points for each of the three time periods:
 The major players of the “producer” side and the major players of the “big capitalist”
side, as well as what groups/organizations—if any—that each side formed to strengthen
their position in that time period;
2
 Two major issues/concerns that they were fighting over in that time period;
 The tactics that each side adopted to get what it wanted (e.g., did they form political
parties, lobby the government, strike, etc?) in that time period; and
 The major concerns of government in that time period, and how government leaders—if
at all—tried to address the concerns of the “producers” and “big capitalists.”

1) choose a text you want to write about.

1) Choose a text you want to write about. It can be anything in our Heath book, whether we have read it for class or not, or anything related to American Literature up through the end of the Civil War, 1865. It can be about a single poem, several poems, a story, any kind of narrative ( including the Native American texts we read), a history text–but remember this is a literature course, so we use history to understand and explain literary texts, not the literary texts to explain history, although that is a perfectly legitimate practice for a history class.
(It might be useful to think of this paper as a dry run or an exploration of a topic or author you will want to write your final paper about)
2) Make some notes about your reactions to this text. Your own thoughts about it, but not your “feelings”, are what I will be looking for.
3) Try writing out a conclusion to your paper first, then write the explanation of how you came to this conclusion. This doesn’t always work for everyone
4) Write the introductory paragraph last, since you won’t know until you finish just what you are introducing.
5) Be sure to use “….” for any direct quotes you take from the text.
6) Read the whole paper out loud to yourself, to see if you discover any grammatical confusions or thoughts that don’t make sense or follow through to your conclusion. You won’t believe how useful this can be to find confusions of sense in your sentences.
