History Question- The Significance of the Frontier in American History.
The United States like most societies and nations has a story surrounding its creation. One story is that the US began in 1776 with the American Revolution (ie the Historian on Housewives (HonH) podcast). Another myth is that the musical Hamilton is an accurate portrayal of American History (see H on H podcast and optional readings). Still another myth is that the land that becomes the US was open for settlement-ie was not inhabited by anyone else. Thus the founding of America can be told as a story of territorial acquisition in absence of violence. In many ways this argument is replicated in Frederick Jackson Turner’s, “The Significance of the the Frontier in American History.” Using the template for the Cornell note taking process, downloadplease generate an outline of Turner’s argument. Detailed instructions for this assignment have been made by your TA Chris Chacon. The instructions are posted in the syllabus and here download. Please remember to use spell check and write in complete sentences.
The Cornell note process is easy when you get the hang of it. Please consult the video made by TA, Mr. Clay Ammentorp for further instructions.
