American History

Your assignment is to write a 4-5 page essay (4 complete pages minimum) addressing the following question:

In Voices of Freedom, Eric Foner writes, that American history is not simply a narrative of continual progress toward greater and greater freedom. While freedom can be achieved, it may also be reduced or rescinded. Write an essay defending this statement by detailing three examples of freedom being achieved and three examples of freedom being denied. You should draw examples from the period of colonization through the early development of the new nation using Chapters 1-8 of course books
