Today we evaluated a series of documents, first from Abraham Lincoln, then from various voices during the Reconsrtuction, in an effort to develop arguments answering essential historical questions. We also took some time to explore the techniques associated with writing the DBQ essay. You will find more information on writing DBQ's under the "APUSH Exam Review-Writing Tips" page on this site. We will continue our discussion Monday befreo writing a practice DBQ this Friday!
