(This letter can be used as an example in the essay of the significance of food for morale and a healthy mind for a soldier battling in the trenches – both psychologically and physically.)

(This letter continues to reinforce the gratitude soldiers had when receiving a small collection of food, and also the inconsistency and instability of food in general during wartime.)

(This letter should be integral to the essay as it does a sound job of encompassing the annoyance and desperation of the food situation for so many combatants during the war. Each of these three letters helps in drawing focus to the torment of a lack of a stable food source that greatly contributed to a desperate state of mind for most soldiers during the Great War.)

YOU CAN USE EITHER OF THE TWO PROMPTS 6 pages is the minimum for this essay 1.

YOU CAN USE EITHER OF THE TWO PROMPTS
6 pages is the minimum for this essay
1. World War II and the Vietnam War were conducted by Americans abroad, but were
fought on the homefront as well. And after each war was concluded, the homefront was
shaped anew by the American experience with that war. Explain.
Please consider this statement broadly and comprehensively (remember, for example,
that “homefront” preparations began long before Pearl Harbor, and that the U.S. was
involved in Vietnam – and other Cold War fronts — long before the Tonkin Gulf
incident). But also be sure to pay attention to specific historical circumstances — to the
specifics of time and place, to what American citizens were doing in factories, homes,
and the streets. Even though this question requires interpretation and is open to a range
of arguments, please aim directly at the question and what it asks you to do. You must
use your lecture notes, The American Yawp, Rumor of War and any relevant discussion or
workshop materials to answer this question.
2. The Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s fulfilled many of the promises
made to African Americans during the first Reconstruction, but was also shaped and
driven by social, economic, and political realities that were new to America in the mid-
twentieth century. At the same time, it attempted to add something new to American
political thought and political life. Explain.
You must use your lecture notes, The American Yawp, “Letter from the Birmingham City
Jail,” James Baldwin’s “Letter to my Nephew,” and relevant discussion and workshop
materials to answer your questions.
Even though this question requires interpretation and is open to a range of arguments,
please aim directly at the question and what it asks you to do.
