NEED to be done by 11:00 pm (23:00) ABSOLUTELY 


1.Why in 1860 did white southerners remain committed to the institution of slavery and its expansion?


2. Based on what you have learned in Part 4, compare and contrast society in the American South with that in the North. Was America, in fact, two distinct societies by 1860? If not, what bonds, beliefs, and cultural practices united Americans across regional boundaries? If so, what factors contributed to the development of separate regional identities?


3.THEMATIC UNDERSTANDING Review the events listed under “Identity” on the thematic timeline, and then discuss how the end of the Atlantic slave trade in 1807 and the subsequent rise of the domestic slave trade affected the identity of the African American population.




4.ACROSS TIME AND PLACE After reviewing the relevant materials in Chapters 38, and 12, explain how the plantation economy and the system of slavery changed between 1720 and 1860


5.VISUAL EVIDENCE Chapter 12 contains a number of paintings or photographs of enslaved African Americans. In your judgment, do those images, either individually or as a group, capture the reality of slave life? Explain your position while evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of paintings and photographs as historical evidence.


6.KEY TURNING POINTS: Using the five entries in the timeline for the 1830s, write an essay that describes the economy, society, and polity of the South in that decade and that analyzes the significance of the decade’s developments in the evolution of the region between 1800 and 1860.
