Analytical, rule of three, style
You should have at least 9 footnotes (parenthetical cites are not allowed) in the modified Turabian style used in this course (see Guide to Citation Style).

Discuss the key social, economic and political changes over time from the 1770s to the 1860s. Successful papers will consider the idea of who is an American and arguments over America’s destiny, the changes wrought by the market revolution, and the arguments over the role of the federal government.

Be sure to use the Rule of Three in this assignment. You should have an intro with thesis statement, at least three paragraphs in the body (one for each point of the thesis) and a conclusion. The best way to organize is to use political, economic, and social as your thesis points.
