You must use Chicago Style in-text citations or footnotes to show where you got the information to answer these questions from. Also include a Works Cited Page. The answers must be in a Microsoft Word file, and you will only be able to upload one file for the assignment. You can use the textbook, resources from Modules 1-5, and Internet sources, but it needs to be a combination of all 3 sources. Moreover, please remember to answer these questions through the time period we have covered so far in class: do not go beyond what was discussed through Module 5.
Choose one of these two questions to answer:
- Explain the role of slavery in the development of the United States up to this point. Make sure to discuss and cite evidence that supports your argument, and cover the entire period from the founding of the original 13 colonies to the writing of the Constitution. Why was slavery established in the first place? Where was it most common, and why? How did it shape what America would become?
- Explain three important differences between the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution, and why each document was approved at the time it was written.
