Hello my dear friends,
I'm writing in order to ask for your help. Could anybody suggest me a good thesis statement for the topic above? Furthermore, I'd be most grateful if somebody could help me with primary sources - bibliography and secondary sources - letters, diaries, etc.
Thank you in advance!
Hmmm... you have Internet access, so you can google this: "Civil War" "African Americans"
Do that, and you will get great info!!!
But if you want peer reviewed, scholarly journal articles, use your school database. Or you can pay for Jstor or Questia.
Try Google Scholar, too!
There is a LOT written about African American soldiers in that war.
Now, for the thesis statement of this or any essay, do not try to write the thesis statement until after you have written some body paragraphs. If you try to write the thesis statement first, it is like going on stage to introduce a performer you know nothing about!!
So, write a paragraph about each article or book you find, and based on those paragraphs you will learn what your main idea is.
