Primary Source Discussion: North and South

Welcome to the Primary Source Discussion assignment.

In these assignments you will have the opportunity to interact with primary sources and your peers. From the syllabus:

What is a primary source?

A source is anything that informs us about the past.

A primary source is a source that comes directly from the time period/place of historical inquiry.

These individuals will have lived
during the time period of inquiry and will provide a unique insight into
this historical time period. Remember, primary sources are not always
100% accurate or 100% useful. They are also incomplete information.
Use your critical thinking skills to answer the discussion questions and
respond to your peers.

You will also incorporate these primary sources into your essay assignment.


Choose a primary source you would like to read: (the links will open up a PDF file)

Alexis de Tocqueville

Daniel R. Hundley

Henry Clay

Lyman Beecher

Thomas Jefferson



Pick 2 of any of the questions below to which you want to answer about the specific primary source chosen.

– How might the author’s biography (personal background) impact his/her perspective?

– How could the author, or the document itself, be biased and not completely accurate?

– How
might the document support (or not support) your essay paper argument?
(essay questions are at the bottom of intro pages ie: GIlded Age

– How might the document be relevant to a current event? (be specific about what current event)

– What else would you like to know about the author or the document itself?

– What other documents/perspectives would be helpful in giving a more complete picture of the historical event?
