Overview: In the first milestone for the final project, you established the three starting points that you are going to investigate for your final paper. You
identified the cause of the event, when the event started and finished, and the major figures involved in the event. For this milestone, you will be asked to
research the surrounding context of the event. In other words, you must understand the trends surrounding the event and the relationship between the trends
and the event. Trends can be the policies that the event has gone against, the political turmoil caused by the event, or the cultural issues.
Note: In the earlier tasks in this module, you discovered the historical trends and supported them with scholarly sources. In this milestone, you will now combine
that information and explain how these surrounding trends impact and relate to your historical event.
Remember, the sources you are using should come only from the provided list to ensure that they are scholarly and essential to the time period.
Prompt: Explain the significance of the major trends of the time period and explain how those trends relate to or impact your chosen historical event. In other
words, why were the trends that defined this historical age important, and what is the relationship between those trends and the event?
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
I. Establish the Context: In this section, you will write multiple paragraphs using information from the course regarding the time period in which your
historical event took place. You will use this section to set the stage for your argument. This section of your essay must include the following:
A. Illustrate the larger historical setting.
1. Identify major trends relevant to your chosen historical event.
2. Explain the significance of the major trends of the time period, connecting the trends to your chosen historical event. In other words,
why were the trends that defined this historical age important, and what is the relationship between those trends and the event?
