One of the most important parts about studying history is the perspective it gives us on what is happening in our world and life today. We can look at current news and compare and or contrast it to something of the past and gain insight about it. For this assignment you will find a current U.S. news article  (published within the past year) and relate it to an event, person or theme we have covered in our course. Come up with three clear ways the current event relates to the class and present your ideas to the class in a presentation (think of using Powerpoint, Prezi (Links to an external site.), or Google slides (Links to an external site.)). The presentation should be at least 5 minutes long and no longer than 10 minutes.

Americans faced a difficult decision whether to join the independence movement or stay loyal.  People made decisions based on what issues were important to them.  If they were Boston merchants (like John Hancock) or Virginia slave holders (like George Washington) or new people moving out onto the frontier close to Indians they would have different concerns.   Most Bostonians were patriot supporters of independence. People in New York were largely loyalist.   Describe one reason (other than the tax question) someone would decide to be a patriot or a loyalist.  Be specific.   You could describe why the Proclamation Line of 1763 would impact a decision or Lord Dunmore's Proclamation.  Other specific reasons could be found by reading about the Coercive Acts, Paine's "Common Sense." or Thomas Jefferson "A Summary View of the Rights of British America."   Don't give an opinion. Give information and analysis. Wikipedia has a "list of loyalists" and some biographical information that could be used....
