Pick one historical figure or group listed below- each of these people or groups are connected to African American Military History from 1860 to1865.
Tell the class the history of this person(s) or units as it relates to African American Military History and remember to cite where you found your information. Also read two of your peers Soldier discussions and comment on the units or people they chose in comparison to the ones your wrote about.
Pick wisely!!!..You cannot repeat a person already covered by you in the INITIAL post or another student has claimed in this follow up forum or points will be taken off for repeating material already covered and you must label your forum heading with the key figure’s name.
***You can label your heading prior to writing your forum response…so you can claim the person or regiment before someone else does.
Example of Forum heading title: 3. USCT 5th Regiment at the Battle of Saltville in 1864
Levi Miller, a CSCT Confederate soldier of Virginia
For online sources, you must ask addition questions. What is the domain (.edu?)? Who publishes the site, or sponsors it? Is it recent (has it been updated)? Are there advertisements or signs that it is a poorly designed website with all kinds of distractions? Is the site supposed to be an academic one? Or is it someone’s pet project?
Remember that this is a formal essay and you need an introduction, body, and conclusion.
