Need some advice for a topic for my term paper (and maybe a thesis too)
I've been thinking and have found it difficult to come to a definite decision regarding a term paper topic. I was wondering if anyone can suggest something. The criteria is that it must be something signifigant in American history, and it can have happened during any time period. It must be a minimum of 15 pages. I'm hoping someone can give me some ideas for something that wouldn't be too broad or too specific to cover in 15 pages, as are most of the ideas I've already come up with are. It would be even better if it was something technology related (so I can actually take interest while doing research), but anything is fair game. I also will need a thesis statement, I'm not asking for advice on that, but if you have one in mind for any of your topic suggestions, I'm open to all advice at this point.

Well the only thing i can think of is that you could talk about some inventions in the late 1800s and early 1900s...like the phone,straw,ferris wheal and some other...I'm sure if you search google about some inventions you should get some neat ones which were really important.

It relates to technology and you could also have a bit fun. The only way I think you could do this is to choose like 5 or so and to talk about each one a bit and talk specifically about the topic 'inventions'.
Dunno but hope this kinda gave you an idea on you paper or at least it led you to another idea.
anyways good luck
