question for hist

This is a take-home essay exam replacing exam #1 for HIST 1302, for those who are unable to use the
Lockdown Browser software. While you may prepare in advance by studying and writing an outline for
use during the exam, you should limit your actual essay to what you are able to write in one
hour (just as if you were in a classroom taking a bluebook exam).
The essay exam needs to be submitted via Turn-it-in on Blackboard. Please, do not use any direct
quotations from any source or the textbook. WRITE IN YOUR OWN WORDS to avoid any question of
plagiarism. Essay exams that appear to be plagiarized will earn a maximum grade of 10/100 for not
following directions.
How did the US change from the period 1865 to the early 1900s? Identify and discuss what you consider
to be three of the most important changes in the US during this period. In choosing the three, consider
developments within the US. Explain why these three changes are the most significant. Use specific
examples and details.
Your essay exam should have an introductory paragraph and a concluding paragraph. Spelling will not
count, but organization of ideas and use of specific details and examples will count.
