This research guide provides research tools for the 2nd essay in Dr. Matthew Smith's HST 111 class. You are required to find two scholarly sources about a person from early American history who impacted history in ways big or small, from the early colonial era of the United States to 1877. Your chosen person must feature in Eric Foner's Give Me Liberty! Vol. 1. You are required to write about them in relation to theme of freedom in American history. The databases below are the main way to find the required sources. It's a good idea to find more than the minimum of six sources.
