    Research a labor dispute in the 1900s or 2000s.  It can be either a strike or a lockout.  What caused the dispute?  What corporation was involved in the dispute and what union was involved in the dispute?  How did the opposing sides come to an agreement to resume work?  This blog needs to be 10 sentences in length.  This blog is due on 4-18-14 at 11:59 p.m.  Remember to edit your writing.

    Blog 

    In Unit 6, we studied about three distinctive groups that had different ideas about how the U.S. should be involved in WW II before the bombing of Pearl Harbor.  Those three groups were the Fight for Freedom Committee, America First Committee, and the Committee to Defend America by Aiding the Allies.  In this week’s blog you have to take on the role of an American in 1940 and decide which of the groups you would have joined and why.  You also have to take on the role of Harry S. Truman and decide if you would have dropped the atomic bomb on Japan.  Why or why not.  This blog needs to be 10 sentences.

    We studied in Chapter 16 that the League of Nations was the fourteenth point in Wilson’s peace plan after World War I.  We learned that the Senate did not approve the Treaty of Versailles or approve the U.S. joining the League of Nations.  In your blog this week, you need to take on the role of an American citizen after World War I.  Do you think the United States should be isolationist or do you think the United States should join the League of Nations?  Write about the benefits and the problems.  Your blog needs to be at least  7 sentences.  Remember to edit your writing.
