Submit a finished original paper that includes a title page and bibliography (without annotations). This assignment is worth 20% of your total grade. It is a REQUIRED component of the course to earn credit. The paper will be submitted to Turnitin.com to ensure lack of plagiarism per UMUC Policy.

This paper will be 8-10 double-spaced pages (excluding the title page and the bibliography), with one-inch margins, Times New Roman font size 12, and either footnotes or endnotes (Chicago Style). Do not use parenthetical notes. If you’re not sure about what this means, ask me.

The finished paper will use both primary and secondary sources to increase the plausibility of the clearly stated, analytical thesis. It will be carefully structured, composed, and proofread, with all required components included in the correct order.

You need a minimum of 7 sources to be eligible for a grade of C (2 websites, 2 journals, 3 primary sources); 10 sources to be eligible for an A. Note the specific requirements for primary and secondary sources.

8 pages for the paper and 2 (I guess for the bibliography i want to have 10 sources)

Thesis Statement/Topic Selection


After the “Tear Down That Wall Speech” given by Ronald Reagan, it was indicative that the Cold War was over. The actions by the Soviet Union after the speech would mean that the U.S. had won the Cold War.
