We continued our discussion over Manifest Destiny today then started working on a set of US maps indicating the conflicts and compromises over slavery in the west from 1820 and the Missouri Compromise through the election of 1860. We also discussed writing a DBQ by examining a sample paragraph analyzing a document.
