US History: What can we learn about life in colonial and revolutionary America and how it changed over time from these sources? How are these sources limited in what they can tell us?

Write a paper that answers the questions below based on the readings we have completed for the discussion quizzes so far this quarter. You should use readings from at least five of the first six discussion quizzes (use at least one reading from each of those five weeks – more than one from any week is perfectly fine and encouraged). You are welcome to use the textbook and/or class notes to supplement the readings from the discussion quizzes (be sure to cite them and the readings from the quizzes!). Note though that your paper should primarily be based on the discussion quiz readings. Questions to answer in your paper: What can we learn about life in colonial and revolutionary America and how it changed over time from these sources? How are these sources limited in what they can tell us? Your paper should be 3-4 pages in length (not including bibliography/works cited), double-spaced, with 1 inch margins and 12 point Times New Roman font. Be sure to provide citations and a bibliography or works cited MLA or Chicago Manual Style are the preferred citation methods. A citation is required whenever you use information from a source, paraphrase, or quote. Be sure to put things in your own words (unless quoting – if quoting be sure you have quotation marks). The bibliography/works cited should list all the sources used in the paper. Your paper should be a Word or PDF document.
