In a 5-6 page double-spaced typed essay, please respond to the following question. Your essay should use Chicago style citation and should use evidence from All That She Carried: The Journey of Ashley’s Sack, a Black Family’s Keepsake, and you may also use evidence from Through Women’s Eyes: An American History With Documents as well as other course materials.
Historians of women, especially of enslaved women, have difficulty telling their story due to in large part to the fact that they lacked power in their society and were often not allowed to learn to read and write. How does historian Tiya Miles combat the lack of written historical evidence to construct a story of Black women from the 1850s-1920s?

Here is my writing guide:
1)Present a clearly stated argument (thesis) on the first page that fully addresses the essay question.
2)Defend your argument against possible objections. You can do this in the body of your essay.
3)Develop your argument through the use of evidence presented in the body of your paper that fully addresses the essay question. Each paragraph should have evidence. Use specific examples from the readings to argue your point.
4) Write clear and effective topic sentences for each paragraph, and transitional sentences leading to the next paragraph. Remember one topic sentence per paragraph with supporting evidence as a general rule. Each paragraph needs evidence, analysis, relate to thesis and then a transition sentence.
5)Present a conclusion that clearly and concisely offers a summation of your argument.
6)Proofread your paper for spelling errors, grammatical mistakes, transitional sentences.
7)Do not switch tenses in your paper. History is written in the past tense.
8)Use Chicago style citation (footnotes not parenthetical citations). See website I have posted for further information.
9)Contextualize your quotations/introduce your quotations. Explain to the reader who is speaking and the context and significance of the the quotation.
10) Write for the ignorant, but intelligent reader. Do not assume the reader knows your topic. Explain your references and your terminology.
11)Paginate your paper.
12)Use the passive voice as little as possible. The passive voice removes human agency from sentences making it seem like events just happen without historical actors. For example: Native Americans were moved off their land in the 1890s. This is an example of passive voice and is not an effective sentence. Who moved the Native Americans and why? Better sentence: Land hungry white settlers and federal land policy pressured Native Americans to move onto smaller reservations.
13)Proofread, edit and revise.
