HIST 344: The Age of Industry in America

Let this guide be your guide through Dr. Jackson's biographical history project. Here you'll find resources for finding primary sources, using Chicago/Turabian Style, and some ideas for contextualizing your chosen subject in history.


Here is but one example of the fun you can have with primary sources:

                                                                          cat dressed as viking, captioned with "Brunnhilde"

The rest of this guide will sadly contain fewer cat photos, but it will provide you with resources for completing your biographical history paper.  Which is fun, in a different way.
