Assignment 1.1: Industrialization After the Civil War Thesis and Outline

Due Week 3 and worth 70 points

After the Civil War, the United States became a much more industrialized society. Between 1865 and

1920, industrialization improved American life in many ways. However, industrialization also created

problems for American society. Consider events that took place after the Civil War and discuss ways that

industrialization affected the U.S. between 1865 and 1920.

For the first part of this assignment you will create a thesis statement. A thesis statement is usually a

single sentence somewhere in your first paragraph that presents your main idea to the reader. The body

of the essay organizes the material you gather and present in support of your main idea. Keep in mind

that a thesis is an interpretation of a question or subject, not the subject itself. (Note: Please consult the

Purdue OWL Website with tips on how to construct a proper thesis; the website can be found at:

For the next part of this assignment you will create an outline of the main points you want to address in

this paper. This outline will serve as the basis for your Assignment 1.2 Final Draft. (Note: Please use the
