Nswer 2 essay questions they are written in the instructions”

answer two essay questions.

1. What led to the rise of the first two-party system? How did reality challenge the visions of the first party leaders?

2. Was the United States defined more by national or regional identities in the early nineteenth century (from the War of 1812 to the Age of Jackson)? How did that sense of identity shape the political landscape?

Essays must be typed, double-spaced, Times New Roman (or equivalent), size 12 font, with 1a? margins. I do not want a cover page, but your name, the course and section number, and the date should be in the upper left corner of the first page (MLA format), and your last name and the page number should be posted in the header of all subsequent pages. Your completed exam should be 3-4 pages.

All information that is not your own personal analysis must be cited, even information that is not quoted. You may use simple parenthetical citations. For a book or article, this would include the authorsa names and page numbers. You should not be using any sources from outside class, so you do not need a works cited page. Essays without proper citation will not be graded.
