Emily P.
Answer:

A thesis statement is a one-sentence summary of your writing. Typically the last sentence of your introduction, you will let the reader know what you will be writing about and/or arguing. The easiest way to write a thesis statement would be to list out the ideas: ___A___ is this way because of ___x____, ___y____, and ____z_____. For example: The American Revolution was caused by heavy taxes, the Boston Massacre, and the Intolerable Acts. (Each cause would then be further described in each body paragraph)

Answer:

At the end of 34 BCE, Marcus Antony demanded joint abdication from the Second Triumvirate. War was not intended between Antony and Octavian, but after continued exchanges of insults and accusations developed, war was inevitable. Not only did the Battle of Actium finalize and strengthen Octaivian's rule, becoming Augustus, but it was one of the few times propaganda was used between enemies in the Ancient World. Drunkenness and relations with Cleopatra were the main themes Octavian used in his propaganda, while Antony focused on Octavian’s relationships. The forms of propaganda used between the two parties included coins, Antony’s will, and gossip. Overall, the propaganda used between Mark Antony and Octavian before and during the clash at Actium impacted the way both Romans and future civilizations would view Antony and Cleopatra.

Question:

What was the Encomienda System?

Answer:

When the Spanish arrived in the new world and set up their colonies, New Spain, they needed to establish a relationship with the Native Americans. Out of Spain's desires, they promised to protect the Native people and convert them to Christianity in exchange for labor and taxes, known as the Encomienda System. When the proposal was put into place, the reality was much harsher. The Natives worked long hours for no pay, lived and worked in harsh conditions, and were given no protection by the Spanish. The Encomienda System became a system of slavery for Native Americans and caused many deaths. One could argue this became one of the reasons for the creation of the Atlantic Slave Trade.
