See the detailed Historical Reflection directions for information about requirements and scoring rubric. For Part I, identify and explain three “gold nuggets” from this week’s historical sources. Do not include evidence from additional sites and resources not included in this week’s resources. For Part II, prepare a three-paragraph response to this key question:
Did women who participated in the Civil War do more to maintain standard gender expectations or did they undermine standard gender expectations? (Helpful tip: Consider the Cult of Domesticity from Chapter 4 for insights into the “standard gender expectations” for women.)
Support your interpretation with specific evidence from this week’s historical sources. Do not include evidence from additional sites and resources not included in this week’s resources. Keep quoted content to less than 20% of your response. Prepare a minimum of three paragraphs responding to this question. (Keep in mind that paragraphs generally consist of five to seven sentences).
Submit your Historical Reflection by Monday. (Although there is a 24-hour grace period for submitting your reflection, please only use this for unexpected emergencies).
