Merican History: How Business has affected the economy over the years

The purpose of the Final Paper is for you to culminate the learning achieved in the course by illustrating your understanding and application of knowledge in American History, by providing you a vehicle to show your leaning and application of historical concepts covered throughout the course.

You will do this by creating a final paper that shows some of the social/cultural, economic, literary, political, and religious changes that have occurred in American History over the time periods covered in the course. As the course guide states, the course is divided into five Units. Unit I 1865-1876, Unit II 1877-1920, Unit III, 1921-1945, Unit IV 1946-1976 and Unit IX 1976-Present.

Focus of the Final Paper

You will do this by writing a paper that clearly and directly identifies which unit, group or issue, and topic you are referring to and how specifically the historical concepts and issues are interrelated and bridged through time. Your paper must include specifics of the topic or issue (background: such as who, when, where, and what was involved, etc.) and significance of the topic or issue (outcome: such as why it was important, what did it lead to, who was affected, etc.).
