Please answer two of the following questions in organized, formal, analytical essays, of at least 800 words each, that you submit together as one file. I do not want you to simply list out page after page of facts and quotes. If you do that, you will not earn a high score, because you will have written a report. You need to think about these questions, draw on what we have covered, and provide convincing answers, backed up with evidence and specific examples, and cited.

This exam is about showing that you can think about some of the big ideas of the course so far, and deliver original thoughts. You have a while to write these, so I expect them to be well-written. Grammar and mechanics will be part of your grade.

As far as sources go, while I obviously cannot prevent you from googling your way into oblivion, keep in mind that the examples and specifics you provide have to be found in some combination of the textbook, lectures, and primary source documents we have covered. If you’re writing about things that you just found somewhere, that is not going to work. These are not research papers, so please, do not use outside sources. And I do not even want to be typing this, but these essays will go through TurnItIn, so do not bother trying to copy.

These are due Tuesday, November 3, at 3:20 PM, on Canvas. The lateness policy applies here, just as it does for your papers.

The English colonists’ relationships with Native Americans differed across regions and changed over time. While none of these relations could ever have been accurately characterized as “good,” they were worse in some places than others, and deteriorated more quickly in some than others. Where do we see examples of these situations over the period we have studied, and how do we explain it all?

Thinking about the fact that Gabriel planned to lead liberated slaves under the banner “Death or Liberty,” what can we infer about how at least some enslaved people saw themselves and their situations in 1800, and what they understood about the United States and its history?

What do land rioters and the Regulator movement tell us about land, class and power in colonial America?
