Santa Ana College The Antebellum Period Annotated Bibliography Please, see attached file for instruction Essay 2 Annotated Bibliography.

An annotated bibliography includes descriptions and explanations of your listed sources beyond the basic citation information you usually provide in a standard bibliography page.

It is first a full citation of the work or source, followed by a brief discussion (big paragraph) that:

summarizes the information included in the source
describes how this information will support your essay topic or thesis
evaluates the source, pointing out possible strengths and weaknesses
Formatting the Annotated Bibliography

For each of your three sources, you will create a citation (see example above for OpenStax) list that is alphabetical by author last name, just how you would list the sources on a standard bibliography page. Provide one space below the citation to begin the annotation – the summary and evaluation of the source. The Antebellum Period
For your second essay you will analyze a major political trend, attitude, conflict, or event
between 1812 and 1860 and explain its historical significance. Your analysis should
answer in depth the question: Why is this particular idea or event important to the
study of early U.S. history? This is a seemingly easy question to answer, but the goal
is to uncover the details and nuances of whichever topic you choose in order to fully
appreciate its value.
Examples you might choose from (but are not limited to) include:

the development of the Republican Party;
Free Soil Movement;
Free Labor Party;
transportation revolution (or related projects);
emergence of working class/middle class/wealthy business elites;
Indian Removal policies;
Nullification crisis;
formation of Whig Party;
Mexican American War;
Texan independence;
any antebellum reform movement;
Underground Railroad;
Fugitive Slave act;
the list goes on! Again, this is a short list to get you started. Basically anything you
find of interest from chapters 9-14 is fair game! If you want to confirm your topic with
me before you begin this paper, I would be happy to give you some preliminary
Based upon the textbook readings as well as two additional academic sources, you
will write a 4-page essay (in addition to a cover page and Bibliography page) that
examines the significance of your topic of choice.
To get started, you will create an annotated bibliography to be submitted prior to the
actual essay. The annotated bibliography has a separate submission section
here: Essay 2 Annotated Bibliography which also includes further instructions.
