The second interactive assignment will have you investigate the participation of African Americans in the CIVIL WAR. The discussion will ask you to highlight all the battles or events the one topic you chose from the list participated in the war.
You may use your book and the internet to research sources to help you in your essay.
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.
