History List - Chapter 8

GoPunchRocks's picture

Ok this is primarily for people who want to do well on essays. If you want to recieve a 8 or 9 on your AP essays, you are going to have to demonstrate you know some history. Generally per paragraph you want to insert bout 5 peices of history. So Ive composed a list of history and you can browse through it and pick and choose. I even took the liberty of dividing it into historical categories. This is also helpful for general essays in history class.

If your essay topic is "Was the revolution an economic, political, social, or intellectual event?" you would select your answer then look through the appropriate history topic and select say 5 or so things to include per paragraph. You can use it to help prove or disporve anything in your essay.

You will note that this is mostly political history because well... its a chapter on war.. :D
