HIS 105 ASSIGNMENT 1 NOTE: PLEASE USE AS A GUIDE OR REWRITE TO MAKE IT YOUR OWN Assignment 1: Dealing with Diversity in America from Reconstruction through the 1920s After the Civil War, the United States had to recover from war, handle western expansion, and grapple with very new economic forms. However, its greatest issues would revolve around the legacies of slavery and increasing diversity in the decades after the Civil War. In the South, former slaves now had freedom and new opportunities but, despite the Reconstruction period, faced old prejudices and rapidly forming new barriers. Immigrants from Europe and Asia came in large numbers but then faced political and social restrictions. Women continued to seek rights. Yet, on the whole, America became increasingly diverse by the 1920s. Consider developments, policies, and laws in that period from 1865 to the 1920s. Examine the statement below and drawing from provided sources, present a paper with specific examples and arguments to demonstrate the validity of your position. Statement—in which you can take a pro or con position: • Political policies and movements in the period from 1865 to the 1920s generally promoted diversity and “the melting pot” despite the strong prejudices of a few. (or you can take the position that they did not). Use specific examples of policies or movements from different decades to support your position. After giving general consideration to your readings so far and any general research, select one of the positions above as your position—your thesis. (Sometimes after doing more thorough research, you might choose the reverse position. This happens with critical thinking and inquiry. Your final paper might end up taking a different position than you originally envisioned.) Organize your paper as follows, handling these issues: 1. The position you choose —or something close to it—will be the thesis statement in your opening paragraph. 2. To support your position, use three (3) specific examples from different decades between 1865 and 1930. You may narrowly focus on race or gender or immigrant status, or you may use examples relevant to all categories. 3. Explain why the opposing view is weak in comparison to yours. 4. Consider your life today: In what way does the history you have shown shape or impact issues in your workplace or desired profession? Length: The paper should be 500-to-750 words in length. Research and References: You must use a MINIMUM of three sources; the Schultz textbook must be one of them. Your other two sources should be drawn from the list provided below. This is guided research, not open-ended Googling. Source list for Assignment 1: Some sources are “primary” sources from the time period being studied.

Diversity in America

After the civil war in America, the states were faced with other issues such as diversity, immigration and the need for industrial revolution and expansion. Some immigrants moved from different locations to America in search of better life, and some fled their nations to enjoy the freedom of worship from the Catholic Church in their nations. Decades following the civil war saw the united states faced with the issue of legacies of slavery and the increasing diversity in the nation. The immigrants from Europe and Asia had to face political and social restrictions, women tirelessly fought for equal rights as men, and former slaves had to deal with old prejudice, all of which formed new barriers. History shows that America became increasingly diverse in by the 1920s despite all the barriers and difficulties. However, political policies and movements in 1865 and 1920s were enacted to deter diversity and ‘the melting pot’ as they were filled with numerous prejudices especially with the people of color and immigrants.

Diversity in this context is the mixture of people from different backgrounds, gender, race, and social classes. To promote diversity, policies and regulations are supposed to ensure that
