We discussed writing the DBQ some more today, focusing on how to analyze a document and link that analysis as evidence in a historical argument. We then spent the rest of class looking at a set of documents related to a historical mystery from Helena, Montana in 1870. Your task was to use all of the documents to extract information related to the murder of John R. Bitzer and the subsequent vigilante lynching of his accused killer Ah Chow then use that evidence to construct a plausible historical recreation of the events.
Tomorrow is your first PRACTICE DBQ. Also, don't forget your next scored discussion is Monday! Be getting those readings and the pre-write completed!
