Using primary texts supplied IN THE FOLDERS ABOVE choose two pro-slavery and two anti-slavery documents and write a 750-word essay that demonstrates how the proponents and opponents of slavery used the themes that frame this course when making their arguments (Mobility Democracy Capitalism and Difference). You should identify the authors main point and utilizing two of the four themes examine how they defended their position. Your paper should conclude by explaining why some contemporaries of slavery may have found certain arguments compelling while others found them offensive (to conclude effectively you will need to explain the historical context in which these texts were written based on what you have read in the text and learned in class discussion). NB: you are not expected to incorporate all of the sources listed just those relevant to your approach to the paper prompt. Your paper must be submitted as a MS Word document which can be attached and uploaded by clicking the red text above .Please note that the proslaverytexts reflect the racism found in many quarters of nineteenth-century America. As historians it is only right that we reject these views as we analyze how these writers constructed their defense of slavery. Other researchers have noted that the proslavery appeal toracism was intended to undermine the Abolitionist efforts to put forth all men are created equal as the core American value (see the antislavery texts). Please beware that the level of racism seen in these documents can be shocking and disturbing to modern readers. No secondary sources other than the text should be integrated into this papers analysis. Your paper should briefly introduce your papers topic or question and provide a thesis statement. In a paper of this size your introduction and thesis statement should appear on the first page in the papers first paragraph. Your paper should show that you reasoned through the evidence in a fair-minded way. In other words you should state (paraphrase) what your evidence says and not what you wish it said or think it should say. You need to state the evidence fairly even if you think it wrong or offensive. Your paper should use evidence to answer the historical question. You need to explain how the evidence answers the question. The easiest way to figure this is to think through your evidence and argument using one or more of the key concepts for this course. Your paper should briefly explain an implication or limitation of your analysis. For an implication you might consider how your analysis sheds light on one of the courses key terms. For a limitation youmight note which key concepts your analysis does not (or cannot) address. Your paper should develop and organize your thoughts clearly and logically. Outlining is a necessary but not required step in writing a well-organized paper. Your paper should draw a conclusion that addresses the papers chief topic or question and that states your answer to the question or your contribution to the topic. How to cite the sources using MLA: Below you will see examples of the formatting for citing your sources. Note that there is an in text format which appears after you directly cite or paraphrase a passage from one of the sources. The cited reference page format is for listing only the sources you use at the very end of the paper. CRP= Cited Reference Page Style ITR= In-Text Reference Style Textbook CRP: Corbett P.
