To Fight or Not to Fight
Class discussion

Discuss the issue: Should a fight always be avoided? Did Jefferson move the country closer to war? What was his plan and how did Constitution help make it work?

“ Relate to Bosnia [or Zaire or a more recent conflict]. Choose a side and write the reason for your position.”
