Steps by which Tennessee seceded from the Union.
Explain the steps by which Tennessee seceded from the Union.
Standard 5 paragraph format.
The essay must have the following components:
Strong opening sentence – a grabber
A little background
Own thesis (big point that you want to make)
3 or 4 paragraphs of evidence (each paragraphs should begin with a topic sentences)
Avoid using quotations from the articles…paraphrasing is best.
Include events before 1861, as well as the unique process by which Tennessee seceded.
In addition to the sources I’m adding, The Tennessee Blue Book (2015-2016 edition) and the Tennessee Encyclopedia of History & Culture could also be of good use.
There is no required amount of sources, but you will need to reference the sources provided.
