SAT Essay: History

Link of the Day

This blog has mentioned before that celebrations are an important part of history.  Are you celebrating Juneteenth today?  Take a look at this explanation of the celebration of the end of slavery in Texas.  Be sure to note the facts, but also think about the themes that are inherent in asking such questions as why it took so long to liberate all the slaves in the United States.  If you are looking for a current event rather than a historical example for your SAT essay, check out this article about current attitudes toward the celebration.
