Greetings and salutations my little APUSHER's! Our next sub-unit within Period 5 takes us from the Deep South to the Wild, Wild West with a study of territorial and economic expansion during the 1830-1860's. Instead of reading chapter 13 from our textbook we are going to switch it up by reading a chapter from a different book. You have will have two in-class days (Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving break) to work on your little project, which are due the Monday you get back. Use the instructions below to complete your mini-project. Excelsior!:
