SECTION I: Identifications (IDs), 20 points each

Please give the definition of each term below from lecture, as well as a date or time period. Then, explain the argument of the lecture that term came from and how it is related to the term. Your answer should be 3-4 sentences in length for each term. You must write an identification for all five terms. The textbook may be used to double-check dates and names, but should not be used to answer IDs. I do not want the Wikipedia definition of a term or argument, but the definition we discussed in class. Simply copying and pasting the lecture argument that the identification term came from is not sufficient; you must explain how the identification term itself fits/relates to the argument. 


Slave Laws

Fort Mystic

Elopement Notices

Stamp Act


Example of an “A” ID:

Chaco Canyon, near present day New Mexico, was a massive Pueblo metropolis until its demise due to drought and deforestation in 1130. At its peak over 15,000 people lived in the city, which was built up around caves with building as high as five stories and as wide as two acres. Kivas, a dugout room for religious ceremonies, were also common in many of the homes and buildings. The existence of pre-European metropolises like Chaco Canyon prove that native peoples were not “discovered” in North America, but existed and created complex civilizations long before colonialism.


(The identification term and the lecture argument from which it came from are both underlined here.)

Your answer should run two pages double-spaced minimum, and you should begin your answer with the number of the question you’ve chosen to answer. Please note that for the essay portion, your grade will depend not only on how well you answer the question but also on how wide a variety of readings and lecture materials you use in writing your answer. A decent essay includes at least three references to class readings.
