Essay 3: Transformations

Your third "petit test" essay will require you to discuss the transformations that the Civil War and Reconstruction unleashed in New Orleans. There is a lot to work with here. Race, politics, culture, economics, demographics, and ethnicity all come to mind.

Thus, your task is a straightforward one: Write an essay that elaborates upon the transformations witnessed in New Orleans between 1860 and 1900. Include as much material as you possibly can within an 1800 word limit. This will again be an exercise in concise writing. Be precise with your words. No fluff allowed!

Due: Thursday, 2/11 in class.
