For your final paper, choose one of the movies from the list below (or one off the list with the approval of your professor), watch it, and write a 900 to 1500-word(not including your title or identifying information at the top of the page) paper about how the movie aligns with historical information you learned in this course during the semester. Your paper should be typed in either Times New Roman or Cambria, 12-point-font and double-spaced. (You can create a cover page, but it is not necessary for completion of the assignment.)
DO NOT summarize the movie. Instead, concentrate on the historical pieces the movie attempts to show and discuss how correct (or incorrect) these items are.
You should submit your paper through the link on Canvas by 11:59 pm EST on Sunday, December 5.
Note: Canvas will run your paper through a plagiarism checker. If your paper is flagged as plagiarized, you will not only earn a 0, but the university honor court will also be informed, which could result in failing the course or suspension from the university.
