The research topic I have chosen is the Japanese-American internment in concentration camps during World War II.
I am currently taking a United States History class with Nancy Zens, and a research paper is required for that class.
This topic is appropriate for Writing 123 because it is informative to me and my readers.
I have previously researched about this topic, but I would like to perform more in-depth, quality, college-level research and learn more about the complete situation.
I am not sure if they would be considered secondary sources because they are authentic from that time period that the Japanese-Americans were being interned, but I know they will be helpful to me so I can see what people were reading in the newspapers about the incidents at that time.
I also plan on finding secondary sources in magazines.
The only requirement for paper is that its topic is in the era between the Civil War and 1980.
I have chosen to write about the Japanese-American internment, which occurred in the 1940s, because it interests me.
I know I will learn a lot from the pictures alone, because they are not interpreted or warped by any writer, but they show exactly what it was like (a picture is worth a thousand words).
I have found that there are numerous books written about the Japanese-American internment during World War II.
