HIST 1301 2 nd Writing Assignment (worth 30 pts.) – DUE 10/8/19 I. BACKGROUND (Paper Topic and Assignment Instructions Below) : Founding a nation is a bold enterprise, and a creative one. The founders of the United States of America were indeed visionary. But they did not all share the same vision. As can be seen with the debates over the Constitution, there were very serious and sincere divisions among the early Americans as to what kind of nation the country should strive to become. The organization and management of political power is one aspect of a community. How that society develops economically is another important aspect to consider. Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton had vivid images of what the future America would look like. These readings will help you become further acquainted with each of those visions. II. PAPER TOPIC: In a 2-3 page double-spaced document, compare and contrast the major elements of Hamilton’s and Jefferson’s different visions for the country’s economy. III. ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Read Chapter 7, with special attention paid to A New Constitution Complete pp. 247-253; Seagull pp. 263-270 2. Read Documents 1 and 2. 3. You do not need to worry about using footnotes or other citations. Just reference in the body of your paper where the information comes from [e.g., according to Hamilton’s “Report on Manufacturers” . . . .] 4. Please reference the course policies on academic dishonesty. When you turn in an assignment, you are telling me it is your work – not cut and pasted from someone’s work. “Presenting someone else’s work as your own constitutes academic dishonesty and will result in the student receiving an automatic "F" for the course.” IV. DOCUMENTS: Document 1 was submitted to the Congress in 1790 by Alexander Hamilton, who was the Secretary secretary of the Treasury at that time. In his "Report on Manufacturers," Hamilton was both fulfilling his duty as Treasury Secretary secretary and trying to persuade the Congress to act. The entire document is 21 twenty-one pages long. This selection from that document provides some good insights into what kinds of actions he wanted Congress to take. Document 2, from Thomas Jefferson's Notes from on the State of Virginia, published in 1784, is short and to the point. He has a very specific vision of a type of economic system he believes is best for The the United States. By "best," Jefferson does not simply mean "most profitable." In this document, he is arguing for what is best for the individual morality of the nation's citizens. Document 1 : Alexander Hamilton, [Promoting the Efforts of Industry], from "Report on Manufacturers," 1790, HYPERLINK "" \t "_blank" The Secretary of the Treasury in obedience to the order of the House of Representatives, of the 15th day of January 1790, has applied his attention, at as early a period as his other duties would permit, to

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
