Geography and Migrations Issues in the USA

Describe and analyze the role geography and migrations played in American politics, economics, and society from the end of Reconstruction through the 1980s.

Consider geography as the tool of analysis in understanding the history of the period. You may consider the roles geography played in migrations as well as how migrations from one location to another changed policies and society. Consider a broad range of evidence in support of arguments and use a minimum of three primary and three secondary sources. Be sure to have a mixture of big and broad ideas and specific or detailed evidence in your argument. Don’t forget the basics of what happened, where, and why it happened there.
