The second interactive assignment forum will have you investigate the participation of African Americans in the CIVIL WAR.  The forum will ask you to highlight all the battles or events the one topic you chose from the list participated in the war.

You may use your book and the internet to research sources to help you in your forum.  You will need three distinct and solid references to show your research on this topic posted in your forum and you will need to read three of your peer’s posts to discuss and debate the history of the Reconstruction era.

For online sources, you must ask addition questions. What is the domain (.edu?)? Who publishes the site, or sponsors it? Is it recent (has it been updated)? Are there advertisements or signs that it is a poorly designed website with all kinds of distractions? Is the site supposed to be an academic one? Or is it someone’s pet project?

Remember that this is a formal essay and you need an introduction, body, and conclusion.
