Pick one of the notable pre-war era politicians or social figures addressed in the lecture, and assume their position and beliefs. After introducing yourself as your selected figure, choose two issues of note presented in this unit (1820-1861), and provide two separate editorial responses (minimum of 250 words for each issue) that you feel best represents your chosen figure’s perspective during this period. Both responses will be submitted together as one document.
A few stipulations: you may not choose a work written by your selected figure, two works by the same person, two works about any one issue, or any topics from outside of this unit. Lastly, do not reprint any actual editorials from the time as doing so will lead to steep deductions.
