Reconstruction Assignment Instructions:
For this assignment, you need to read McGerr chapter 15, and the articles by Eric Foner, Kerry Leigh Merritt, Heather Andrea Williams, and Michael Snay, and the documents found under the header Reconstruction Assignment Articles and Documents. Once you have read all parts of the assignment, you will address the questions below in the assignment. The assignment must be 27-30 sentences using specific examples from the McGerr chapter and two of the articles (more than one example) AND the primary sources (more than one) per question. Limit the use of quotations to one per paragraph, limited to two lines of text. Be sure to provide proper citations for materials used, as you have done for all writing assignments.
I will deduct points from any assignment that does not meet the criteria. This assignment will be posted to the Reconstruction Assignment link.
Each assignment should have a 1″ margin, be left-justified, in 12 point Times New Roman font, and double spaced.
In what ways was Reconstruction a success? In what ways was Reconstruction a failure? I suggest that you develop 2-3 specific examples per part (remember that you must provide examples from the Young text, more than one example from two of the articles, and two or more documents, per question).
Remember that this is not an essay, so an introduction and conclusion is not needed. The best way to organize the assignment is in two paragraphs, one which addresses the first question and the other that addresses the second question. I am not asking for a quote from each article or document, but for you to be able to summarize and paraphrasefrom those sources and to limit the use of a quote to one per paragraph.
Using paraphrase and summary is the best way to explain things without using quotes. So, you can still mention the same kinds of examples, just using your own words instead to explain those ideas.
For instance, if one was going to talk about a document like George Washington’s speech from 1794, one could mention that he spoke at length on the need for a standing militia to be able to address issues like the rebellion in Western Pennsylvania, which speaks to a key point he made in the speech without using a direct quote (par. 9, 10). That could be followed by another point that Washington expressed concern about the safety of tax collectors who had to leave their homes in fear for their lives because of rebel actions in Western Pennsylvania (par. 4). Finally, that third key point could use a quote that says that Washington ordered troops to Western Pennsylvania to restore order and to “persevere in their affectionate vigilance over that precious depository of American happiness, the constitution of the United States.” (par. 15).
Each assignment should have a 1″ margin, be left-justified, in 12 point Times New Roman font, and double spaced.
For this assignment proper citation would be something like this:
According to Frederick Douglass,…. (par. 4)
According to Eric Foner…. (par 12)
According to Michael McGerr, Reconstruction resulted in …… (p. 485).
Constructing your examples this way ensures that the reader knows that it is a specific example and knows exactly from where that material is drawn. Points will be deducted for not properly citing your paraphrased, quoted, or summarized material.
Limit the use of quoted material in your essay. No long quotations, which are more than two lines. I am interested in what you are able to get out of the material and not that you can drop a quote into a paragraph. If you use a quote, use one short quote per paragraph. Paragraphs that string together a series of quotes are not acceptable. If you are using multiple examples from different sources in your paragraph, you will need to choose your quotes carefully and paraphrase other material.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
