WRITING ASSIGNMENT 1A: Reconstruction. President Lincoln’s goal for reconstruction remained linked to his goal in the war-preserve the Union. His plan favored leniency, in order to as quickly as possible reintegrate the south, and gain the support of Southern Unionists (mostly former Whigs). Radical Republicans urged a much harsher course, believing that the south was unrepentant and should bear the costs of Reconstruction. INSTRUCTIONS: In order to prepare you must complete the following readings: Review the section in Chapter 17 which discusses the Black Codes, and the linked document, taken from the writings of William A. Dunning . Review the relevant sections of Chapter 18: The Southern Burden and Life in the New South. Review and identify relevant information on the linked PBS American Experience site, Reconstruction The Second Civil War Utilize at least one of the linked sources to support your discussion. Identify and incorporate at least one additional outside source to support your discussion. In addition to the textbook, you may use any material outside of the textbook that is recommended in the Additional Reading section at the end of each chapter. You are also encouraged to do your own research and identify relevant sources. Please keep in mind that WIKIPEDIA is not an acceptable reference. PREPARE AND SUBMIT: Write a well-organized essay, a minimum of 700 words (but not limited to), including supporting details from the documents/textbook/other sources in which you analyze and discuss the material that has been assigned by addressing the following question: In your opinion, were the Radical Republicans correct in their assumptions regarding the South, or could Lincoln’s approach have paved the way for a continuation of the political, social and economic gains that African Americans had achieved during reconstruction? Support your argument(s) including information from assigned and linked readings Reminders Paragraphs in an essay are not numbered. Any questions that are associated with an assigned reading are there to serve as a guide for your discussion. Your discussion should incorporate all of the information from the documents and or textbook, and outside sources as one essay. Students are required to research and incorporate into their discussions additional sources that relate to the content. Recommendations can be found in at the end of the textbook chapter in Additional Reading. All statements must be supported and all sources must be identified and cited, and included in your reference list. This also applies to the textbook. Failure to do so constitutes Plagiarism, and the college has strict policies and penalties for failure to comply. Under the Resources, you will find links to sites that review how to format a paper or essay. I recommend that students use APA or Chicago Style to format their essay. Students should ask their instructor which format style they prefer you to use. Proofread your work. Make sure that you have looked for all of the spelling and grammatical errors and corrected them, and that you have organized your work into coherent paragraphs. Prepare the assignment as a Word Document, double-spaced and using a standard font of 12 points. Submit via the Dropbox as an ATTACHMENT. Any work that is submitted directly into the box will be graded as a 0.
