Wait your in college and you write like that. Holy crap, you should have started this paper two months ago.


Who were involved
Why did it happen
When did it happen
Where in Boston

I figure if you write one page answering those 4 questions you will do fine. What is this History 101 class or Writing 101.

How much you paying. I will write it for you and email it to you.

100 dollars gets the paper written
100 per page will get you a C
200 a page will get you an A+.

history 103
i have an intro, thats almost 1 page, gotta address these 3 questions
1. According to captain preston, did the bostonians have legit reasons for being unhappy about the fact that brit troops were station in their city
2. judging from Preston's account, does the term Boston Massacre seem accurate?
3. since Preson would naturally be incline to present his actions and the actions of his men in the best light, how believeable is his account of what happened?

im just starting 2

CHICAGO STYLE: HISTORY

Most assignments in history and other humanities classes are based to some extent on reading. At times you will be asked to respond to one or two readings, such as essays or historical documents. At other times you may be asked to write a research paper that draws on a wide variety of sources.

Most history instructors and some humanities instructors require you to document sources with footnotes or endnotes based on The Chicago Manual of Style, 15th ed. (Chicago: U of Chicago P, 2003).

Chicago documentation style

Professors in history and some humanities courses often require footnotes or endnotes based on The Chicago Manual of Style. When you use Chicago-style notes, you will usually be asked to include a bibliography at the end of your paper (click here for a sample bibliography).

TEXT

A Union soldier, Jacob Thomas, claimed to have seen Forrest order
the killing, but when asked to describe the six-foot-two general,
he called him "a little bit of a man."13


FOOTNOTE OR ENDNOTE

13. Brian Steel Wills, A Battle from the Start: The Life of
Nathan Bedford Forrest (New York: HarperCollins, 1992), 187.


BIBLIOGRAPHY ENTRY

Wills, Brian Steel. A Battle from the Start: The Life of Nathan Bed-
ford Forrest. New York: HarperCollins, 1992.


First and subsequent notes for a source

The first time you cite a source, the note should include publishing information for that work as well as the page number on which the passage being cited may be found.

1. Peter Burchard, One Gallant Rush: Robert Gould Shaw and His
Brave Black Regiment (New York: St. Martin's, 1965), 85.


For subsequent references to a source you have already cited, you may simply give the author's last name, a short form of the title, and the page or pages cited. A short form of the title of a book is italicized; a short form of the title of an article is put in quotation marks.

4. Burchard, One Gallant Rush, 31.


When you have two consecutive notes from the same source, you may use "Ibid." (meaning "in the same place") and the page number for the second note. Use "Ibid." alone if the page number is the same.

5. Jack Hurst, Nathan Bedford Forrest: A Biography (New York:
Knopf, 1993), 8.


6. Ibid., 174.


Chicago-style bibliography

A bibliography, which appears at the end of your paper, lists every work you have cited in your notes; in addition, it may include works that you consulted but did not cite. For advice on constructing the list, click here. Click here for a sample bibliography.

NOTE:If you include a bibliography, The Chicago Manual of Style suggests that you shorten all notes, including the first reference to a source, as described here. Check with your instructor, however, to see whether using an abbreviated note for a first reference to a source is acceptable.




RESEARCHING IN HISTORY

Research in history involves developing an understanding of the past through the examination and interpretation of evidence. Evidence may exist in the form of texts, physical remains of historic sites, recorded data, pictures, maps, artifacts, and so on. The historian's job is to find evidence, analyze its content and biases, corroborate it with other evidence, and use the evidence to develop an interpretation of past events that has some importance for the present. Historians use libraries to

locate primary sources (firsthand information such as diaries, letters, and original documents) for evidence
find secondary sources, historians' interpretations and analyses of historical evidence
verify factual material as inconsistencies arise
Doing historical research is a little like excavating an archaeological site. It requires patience, insight, and imagination as well as diligence and the right tools. As you find and examine primary sources, you need to imagine them in their original context and understand how your present-day point of view may distort your interpretation of them. You need to recognize not only your own biases but the biases that shaped primary materials in their own period. You need to brush away the layers of interpretation that time has imposed on them and imaginatively re-create the complexities of the environment in which they were created. Students doing historical research should be prepared to

survey historians' interpretations of the past while recognizing how their purposes or backgrounds might influence their interpretations
understand the context in which primary sources were generated
identify conflicting evidence and locate factual and interpretive information that can help resolve or illuminate those differences
Many bibliographies can help you identify primary and secondary sources related to a particular topic or historical period. Be sure to examine bibliographies and footnotes in secondary sources as you find them, since they will often lead you to primary sources. Finally, innumerable encyclopedias, dictionaries, handbooks, and chronologies can provide information to round out your interpretations and ground them in fact. Consult a librarian to find out what the reference shelves offer for your topic and whether the library has any special collections of microfilm, archives, manuscripts, or other primary sources especially suited to your research.
