Dawn MacDonaldHIS 200: Applied HistorySouthern New Hampshire UniversityMay 5, 2018Writing Plan – Research QuestionTopic and Research QuestionTopic: During my research for a historical event, I chose to concentrate my research around the atomic bombing in 1945 on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This event affected history for many years to come. The United States changed history forever when they decided to take the WWII into their own hands by using the first ever atomic bombs. The first bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan on August 6th, 1845, and days later the second bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan. These two bombs killed over 80,000 people but as months and years passed hundreds if thousand died from the deadly effects of the bombs. One of the known controversy is whether the medical effects of the bomb were known prior to the actual bombing. Some say many scientists and researchers were well aware of the havoc the bombs would have for many years to come while other were accused of turning a blind eye. Not only did research prove the bombings had many long-lasting effects on the civilians and their lineages both physically and socially for years to come, the bombing also changed the game for warfare to come. Research Question:What were the physical and social effects of the atomic bomb on Japanese civilians in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945?
