history 1

So far in this course, we have introduced and assessed many noteworthy figures related to the colonizing and first 90 years of the United States. For this assignment, you will choose a significant figure who contributed to and influenced others during the time discussed in this course—BUT NO U.S. PRESIDENTS—and prepare an outline of how you would choose to communicate that figure’s relevance to today. This is not a biography. Your argument should highlight how society remembers your historical figure now. For this assignment, you will be creating a one-page outline (minimum of 300 words) about your chosen figure and how he or she impacted the evolution of American philosophies or ideals.
