On this page, I will post selected writings that I have done for school or for pleasure. Some are essays, some are book/article reviews, and others are research papers. Please feel free to read them, and let me know what you think!

This was written for my Jeffersonian-Jacksonian Democracy (History 525) class. It is a review of two books that I selected to read. I was nominated to present this paper at the annual OSU Academy of History Conference by my professor.
A brief essay for my History 566 course, and my opinion of the Civil Rights movement.

A research paper, about the involvement of the Freedmen's Bureau in education of free blacks during Reconstruction.

My final paper in History 566. A study of two major Cold War events that are often glossed over in the history books. I really enjoyed researching/writing this one.
Another brief essay for my History 566 class. Read it to see my answer.
