This is a research paper, but is argumentative and has a historiography section. My thesis is based off of the topic that was given to me. The thesis can be
changed a bit depending on what you’re able to work with. However, it needs to be about the western cities and wilderness in about the late 1800’s United
States. 10 primary sources and 6 secondary sources. We do not need to use all of the sources but they all need to be on our bibliography. Footnotes for
citations are needed. Citations and footnotes are to be in Chicago Manual of Style.
My thesis statement and argument is: “The industrialization of western cities has had negative impact that was immediate and caused long-term negative
effects on Plains Tribes and their relationships with the wilderness and with each other.” Again, this can be reworked if this isn’t argumentative enough or if
sources cannot form an argument for or against this. I attached a detailed outline of how the paper is supposed to be structured to help out a bit.
