This afternoon I handed in my proposal. I really liked the idea of having the proposal by the paper because it reinforced the importance of initial research and planning, which I too often rush. I choose a difficult topic of mercenaries and I struggled to bring it all together. I think it ultimately worked out though. I am learned so much information concerning immigration which should help in my senior seminar next semester. Also, next semester I will make sure to isolate the leading historians on my material, not just the most recent or convenient!
