Suggest reasons why slavery was and is incompatible with our political and economic system.

 
America became a free independent nation. With the signing of the Treaty of Paris in 1783, the former mother country, England, recognized that its children, the colonies, were now on their own. A constitutional republic was birthed, and thus the challenges began. Slavery, the “Peculiar Institution,” was a monumental issue facing the country. Would it die or would it survive and possibly take a nation divided with it? This sectionalism followed Americans up into the Civil War. Dissect this crisis by addressing parts I and II below.

Strayer University Writing Standards  2  Giving Credit to Authors and Sources When quoting or paraphrasing another source in your writing, you need to give credit by using an in-text citation. An in-text citation includes the author’s last name and the number of the source from the source list. Find tips here.  Option #1: Paraphrasing Rewording Source Information in Your Own Words 

·  Take the source information and rephrase it in your words. Be sure not to repeat the same words of the author.   
·  Add a number to the end of your source (which will tie to your source list).   
·  Remember, you cannot just replace the words of the original sentence.   

 Examples ORIGINAL SOURCE “Writing at a college level requires informed research.” PARAPHRASING As Harvey wrote, when writing a paper for higher education, it is critical to research and cite sources (1). When writing a paper for higher education, it is imperative to research and cite sources (Harvey, 1).  Examples ORIGINAL SOURCE “Writing at a college level requires informed research.” QUOTING Harvey wrote in his book, “Writing at a college level requires informed research” (1). Many authors agree, “Writing at a college level requires informed research” (Harvey, 1).  Option #2: Quoting Citing another person’s work word for word 

·  Place quotation marks at the beginning and the end of the quoted information.   
·  Add a number to the end of your quote (which matches your source list).   
·  Do not quote more than one to two sentences (approximately 25 words) at a time.   
·  Do not start a sentence with a quotation.   
·  Introduce and explain quotes within the context of your   paper.   

Strayer University Writing Standards  3  Source List The source list (which includes the sources that you used in your assignment) is a new page that you will add at the end of your paper. The list has two purposes: it gives credit to the authors that you use and gives your readers enough information to  nd the source without your help. Build your source list as you write.  Setting Up the Page Building a Source List Source List Elements AUTHOR  Examples Michael Harvey In the case of multiple authors, only list the  rst.  · Type “Sources” at the top of a new page. · Include a numbered list of the sources you used in your paper. (the numbers indicate the order in which you used them). A well-researched assignment has at least as many sources as pages. 1. Use the number one (1) for the  rst source used in the paper, the number two (2) for the second source, and so on. 2. Use the same number for a source if you use it multiple times. · Ensure each source includes four parts: author or organization, publication date, title, and how to  nd it. If you have trouble  nding these details, then re- evaluate the credibility of your source. · Use the browser link for a public webpage.  · Look for a permalink tool for a webpage, which requires logging in, such as the Strayer Library. · Write a comment instructing your readers how to  nd all sources that do not have a browser link or a permalink.  PUBLICATION DATE 2013 This is not the same as copyright date, which is denoted by ©  TITLE The Nuts & Bolts of College Writing  HOW TO FIND http://libdatab.strayer.edu/login?url=http:// search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct =true&db=nlebk&AN=590706&site=eds- live&scope=site   How it Will Look in Your Source List  1.
