Contrasting Perspectives – The War With Mexico
Read the following sources:
• Polk's Request for War with Mexico (1846) https://services.wwnorton.com/aws/pdf?file=/wwnorton.college.public/history/am-docs/polkrequest-for-war.pdf
• U.S. Grant, Memoir on the Mexican War (1885) https://services.wwnorton.com/aws/pdf?file=/wwnorton.college.public/history/amdocs/memoir-mexican-war.pdf
Part 2. Comparing and Contrasting After reading all of the sources, write a Compare-Contrast essay (150-250 words) in which you include main ideas from each reading. You must include a Works Cited in which you list all of the Sources in Chicago form citations (the information for the sources is included at the bottom of each source). If you quote from the readings, you also need to use the correct Chicago Style citation for footnotes.
Remember to address:
1. What is the same in each account?
2. What is different in each account?
