Good morning, scholars!
Today, I really want you to work on writing thorough answers that are explained using your own words. Use details from the reading material that I provide. Finding the details is important, but so is explaining them!!
You are going to read about regional differences on issues like slavery created great turmoil in the nation. The North and South had huge disagreements on how the country should develop especially as Americans moved westward. As I mentioned yesterday, there are still regional tensions that can be seen in the United States today. Part of thinking like a historian is linking events from the past and trying to make connections to modern times.
In addition to trying to resolve regional tensions, the young country was still trying to figure out how to best deal with established European powers like Britain and Spain.
Remember, don't rush through the reading. Take the time to closely analyze the text. Good luck!
