I'm supposed to be writing my historiographical essay. WHY don't the sources say what I want them to? I know what I want to write but no books are agreeing with me. This might be a problem for my history thesis. DAMN if that Griffin guy can make up the history of the Civil War and Reconstruction. I can make up the history of blacks post-Civil War. Well I'm not really making it up. The books imply what I want to say but no one is writing EXACTLY what I want them to say. This is rambling and I'm stressed. I will love my thesis soon. I hope.
