Preparation for the Quiz: History 1614 The quiz is on Unit One. There will be 10 objective questions taken from information in the Unit One outline (five multiple choice questions, and five true or false questions). Each is worth 1 point for a total of 10 points. Be sure to study this outline closely before taking the quiz. Also, there will be four identification terms on the quiz. Actually, six will be listed, but you are to pick any four. Then write an answer that identifies and gives the significance of each of these four terms. Each term is worth 5 points for a total of 20 points. The six terms will be taken directly from the list of twenty terms found below. Be sure to study these twenty terms before taking the Unit One quiz. Finally, there will be two longer essays. Each will be worth ten points for a total of 20 points. These essays are not taken directly from the twenty terms listed below, but knowing these terms should help you. The ten-point essays are broader questions on the material in Unit One. You will see three of these ten -point essays on the quiz, and you will have to select only two of them. It is a 50-point quiz with ten objective questions, four of the 5-point identification terms, and two of the 10-point essays. In a “self-paced” course all students do not have to take an exam at the same time, but you should adhere as much as possible to the suggested date for the quiz, mid- term, and final exam. List of Terms for Unit One 1. Egocentric Sectionalism: It is often cited as an underlying cause of the Civil War. It means that people in a geographic section of the country think of themselves as the only true and loyal citizens. People who feel this way look upon people in other sections as un-American because they have different life styles and values. Egocentric sectionalism is a term coined by the historian Frank L. Owsley. 2. Great Planters: There were very few Great Planters in the American South. It is estimated that only one/half of 1 percent of the White families in the South in 1860 owned 100 or more slaves. They were called the Great Planters because of their power and influence. Others had fewer slaves. About 10 % had 20 or more slaves while 20-25 % owned one or more slaves. 3. Robert E. Lee’s Pre-Civil War Career: His mother was a Virginia aristocrat and his father, “Light Horse Harry” Lee was a hero of the American Revolution. Robert E. Lee’s wife was the granddaughter of Martha Washington. He was a graduate of West Point and later headed that institution. He served in the U.S army for 32 years and gained fame as an outstanding officer in the Mexican War. He declined President Lincoln’s offer to head the Union army. Instead he followed his state of Virginia into secession in spite of a personal opposition to secession as a solution to the sectional crisis. 4.
