Prompt: Throughout the first portion of this class, we have examined the changing definition of freedom. Different groups had different meanings and understandings of the concept of freedom. For this paper, discuss the meaning of freedom for the following groups: freed slaves, white southerners, the businessmen of the Gilded Age, immigrants and other factory workers/laborers, and imperialists and non-imperialists. In what ways did the federal government intervein and shape these meanings?

- Your essay should begin with a paragraph that introduces and summarizes the oral histories that you read. You should also have a sentence that attempts to answers the above questions.
- In the body paragraphs of the essay (aim for 2-4 paragraphs), use examples and evidence from the oral histories to answer the questions above.
- The last paragraph of the paper should be your conclusion. In your conclusion, summarize your arguments you made to answer the question.
Your answer should be based on material provided to you on Canvas, as well as the assigned reading for this course. DO NOT CONSULT ANY OTHER OUTSIDE SOURCES!!!I do not want to know what Google or Wikipedia tells you about this topic. All the information you need to answer this question can be found in the documents posted on Canvas. I will dock points for any outside research!
You can quote directly from the oral histories. I am not concerned with formal citations; however, you need to make some effort at showing me what part of the document you found the quote. You are free to use Chicago, MLA, or APA if you’re comfortable with those citations. If you don’t know any of those, just include the last name of the interviewee and the page number after your quote.
You should also try to avoid extended quotations. In almost all circumstances, you shouldn’t be quoting more than one or two sentences at a time. When you’re trying to quote a longer passage, intersperse your own words as necessary. When we see paragraph-length citations we start to worry that you’re just trying to fill up space…
