I’m working on a History writing question and need a sample draft to help me understand better.
Choose one commodity that played a major role in the economy of the American colonies or the United States prior to 2000. Once chosen, address the following:
• The history of the commodity in the colony/colonies/America
• Its economic impact on the colony/colonies/America (both short- and long-term)
• Its economic impact outside of the colonies/America (both short- and long-term)
• Its social, cultural, political impact on the colony/colonies/America
