In three to five paragraphs (three to five sentences each), construct an essay that demonstrates your knowledge of the American Creed in the history of American political thought. Discuss two speeches of Abraham Lincoln and how they drew on or further support the American Creed. Finally, discuss how ideas about the American “frontier” are linked to the American Creed in the contemporary U.S. Use a variety of course readings with page numbers throughout your answers. I advise you to outline and edit before submitting your final answer. Use the critical thinking and political vision skills you developed this semester.
