Begin with an introduction that explains your thesis, the author’s thesis and credentials, and outlines the rest of your paper. Then most of your paper should be dedicated to summarizing the most important evidence that the author uses to support his thesis. In your last 2-3 paragraphs you should evaluate the author’s use of evidence, compare the book with other books or articles (you can use McClay or JSTOR) on the subject, and conclude with a final evaluation of the book by discussing who would find it useful and why.

In the United States there are two major parties, the Democratic Party and the Republican Party. There are also several other, smaller parties which are collectively known as “third parties”. The largest amongst those are the Libertarian Party and the Green Party. Nationally the Constitution Party is another sizable “third” party, while in California the Peace and Freedom Party is also a sizable “third” party.
Your assignment is to pick one of the major parties and one of the minor parties. Pick an issue or two, and see where each party stands on that issue. To do this you will need to check out the party platform of the parties which you are comparing and look up their stance on the issue or issues you selected. From there, you are to write a compare and contrast essay regarding what those parties believe on those issues. Make sure to fully describe how similar or different these parties are on the issue or issues which you selected. You may conclude with your opinions on the stances of those parties, but this is not mandatory.
Answer the prompt below. The essay must be double spaced, in Times New Roman, and in 12-point font. Your response should be at least 3 pages and must consist of a minimum of 700 words. At the top of the paper be sure to include your name and the course (PS1). Include a title at the top center of the paper. Be sure to answer the question fully and clearly.

History 106 Ryan McMillen Oral History Project Length: 6-8 pages Final Paper Due

History 106
Ryan McMillen
Oral History Project
Length: 6-8 pages
Final Paper Due AUGUST 4
Project Proposal and List of Questions Due JULY 14
For this project, you will be engaging in an oral history project involving data collection, analysis and presentation. Each student will choose a particular historical event between 1945 and today (INCLUDING THE PANDEMIC) that is particularly memorable.
***I typically ask that the event covered in the project is something which occurred at least a decade prior, because events that are very recent are often difficult to understand historically.
However, we are living in extraordinary times. If you would like to fulfill your final project by using the COVID-19 pandemic as your topic, feel free to do so. You may write an oral history paper in which you interview two different people you know and then comparing and contrasting their responses to your interview questions.
PLEASE DO NOT INTERVIEW ANYONE IN PERSON. CONDUCT ALL INTERVIEWS VIA PHONE, EMAIL, ZOOM, FACETIME, ETC***
You must
a) Define the event
b) Find individuals living during the period who remember the event
c) Determine what questions should be asked of those individuals about the event
d) Interview your subjects, and preferably record the interviews somehow (although not necessary.)
d) Pool the data and questions about the event collected and present it in a short analytical report using outside sources.
You should interview two people about the event, and you should attempt to have your subjects be as diverse as possible. I will leave the choice of subjects up to you.
PLEASE DO NOT INTERVIEW ANYONE IN PERSON DURING THE PANDEMIC. Interviews can be done over email, phone, Facetime, Zoom, etc. Follow-up interviews may be necessary to clarify certain points raised in the initial interview, and which come up during creation of the paper.
The questions need not be complex, but each interviewer must have a historical knowledge of the event such that they know how to talk about the event, they know how to listen to the subject concerning the event, and perhaps know how to respond with follow-up questions that may not be on the group’s prepared list of questions.
Also, the subject must be justified as relevant to the context of the course. The deeper connections you make between the experience of your subjects and the larger themes of the course, the better.
Older subjects are particularly preferred, i.e. grandparents, because their knowledge is more in danger of being lost. BUT DO NOT INTERVIEW IN PERSON (unless you are already STRICTLY isolating with that person.)
Examples of events:
JFK Assassination
MLK Assassination
Landing of men on the moon
Presidential elections (1968, in particular, was memorable)
Gulf War I or II
Arab Spring
Superstorm Sandy
9/11
COVID-19 PANDEMIC
There are several other events one can choose from but remember that smaller events might not be remembered by everyone. Choose big, resonant, important events.
Your paper should consist of three main components. The first two need only be in list format. You should include in your report
1) a list of the prepared questions asked,
2) a list of those interviewed, and most importantly
3) a report analyzing the answers to these questions and any follow-up questions.
Your paper should also use outside sources (secondary sources are fine) to describe the event itself and to help analyze the particular perspective your subjects bring to the event. For instance, if you interview your mother about the Kennedy assassination, and she worked in an office at the time, you might want to find out how working women viewed Kennedy at the time. This can help shed light on your mother’s reaction, and on the reaction of middle-class working women in the 1960s in general. This is only one example among an infinite number of examples.
Most of all, have fun. Interviewing your elders and showing an interest in their personal history can be a very rewarding experience.

Your essay will need to use at least six out of the eight following documents:
Document #1:
Document #1: The Bill of Rights (1791)
Document #2:
“During the contest of opinion through which we have passed the animation of discussions and of exertions has sometimes worn an aspect which might impose on strangers unused to think freely and to speak and to write what they think; but this being now decided by the voice of the nation, announced according to the rules of the Constitution, all will, of course, arrange themselves under the will of the law, and unite in common efforts for the common good. All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression. Let us, then, fellow-citizens, unite with one heart and one mind. Let us restore to social intercourse that harmony and affection without which liberty and even life itself are but dreary things. And let us reflect that, having banished from our land that religious intolerance under which mankind so long bled and suffered, we have yet gained little if we countenance a political intolerance as despotic, as wicked, and capable of as bitter and bloody persecutions. During the throes and convulsions of the ancient world, during the agonizing spasms of infuriated man, seeking through blood and slaughter his long-lost liberty, it was not wonderful that the agitation of the billows should reach even this distant and peaceful shore; that this should be more felt and feared by some and less by others, and should divide opinions as to measures of safety. But every difference of opinion is not a difference of principle. We have called by different names brethren of the same principle. We are all Republicans, we are all Federalists. If there be any among us who would wish to dissolve this Union or to change its republican form, let them stand undisturbed as monuments of the safety with which error of opinion may be tolerated where reason is left free to combat it. I know, indeed, that some honest men fear that a republican government can not be strong, that this Government is not strong enough; but would the honest patriot, in the full tide of successful experiment, abandon a government which has so far kept us free and firm on the theoretic and visionary fear that this Government, the world’s best hope, may by possibility want energy to preserve itself? I trust not. I believe this, on the contrary, the strongest Government on earth. I believe it the only one where every man, at the call of the law, would fly to the standard of the law, and would meet invasions of the public order as his own personal concern. Sometimes it is said that man can not be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then, be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the forms of kings to govern him? Let history answer this question.”

Document #7
“A free negro of the African race, whose ancestors were brought to this country and sold as slaves, is not a “citizen” within the meaning of the Constitution of the United States. . . .
The only two clauses in the Constitution which point to this race treat them as persons whom it was morally lawfully to deal in as articles of property and to hold as slaves. . . .
Every citizen has a right to take with him into the Territory any article of property which the Constitution of the United States recognises as property. . . .
The Constitution of the United States recognises slaves as property, and pledges the Federal Government to protect it. And Congress cannot exercise any more authority over property of that description than it may constitutionally exercise over property of any other kind. . . .
Prohibiting a citizen of the United States from taking with him his slaves when he removes to the Territory . . . is an exercise of authority over private property which is not warranted by the Constitution, and the removal of the plaintiff [Dred Scott] by his owner to that Territory gave
him no title to freedom.”
Document #7: Roger Taney on Dred Scott v Sandford (1857)
Document #8:
Document #8: Map of 1860 Election
Your grade (250 points) for this assignment will be based on the following criteria:
Thesis: Present a thesis that makes a historically defensible claim and response to all parts of the question. Your thesis must consist of one or more sentences located in the introduction.
Argument Development: Develop and support a cohesive argument that recognizes and accounts for the historical complexity by explicitly illustrating relationships among historical evidence such as contradictions, corroboration, and/or qualification.

Provide examples or additional historical evidence (key terms/concepts from the reading and online lectures) related to the documents to support your argument
Be Creative with Your Organization/Do not provide a list of document summaries: Do not use the document # as the topic sentence of your body paragraphs for doing so will make your submission looks more like an itemized list of document summaries. Instead, your topic sentence should highlight/preview a historical theme/idea that your paragraph will discuss. Use the documents as evidence to validate/support the themes you are trying to highlight to answer the essay prompt
Proofread Your Essay Before Submission: if there is extra time left before the submission deadline, you should use it to proofread your essay and rearrange your writing to make sure it is organized and presented in a manner that the reader can follow and comprehend.
Citation: A work cited list is not needed because all of your content should be based on lectures and assigned readings only. A simple (Doc #) citation at the end of the sentence in which you discussed the document is sufficient.
