Civil War Vs. American Revolution

You will write a 3 page comparative history paper.

A comparative history paper is comparing and contrasting two different time periods or places in history. The catch is: one of these time periods/places has to be what is within the boundaries of what is today Texas.

For example (these are just to get your mind going, not a list from which you need to pick):

Comparing the foundation of the Republic of Texas to the creation of the US Constitution.
Comparing the US Civil War to the English Civil War.
Comparing slavery in history to slavery in Texas.
The Texas Revolution compared to the American Revolution.
The end of slavery in Texas versus the British Empire.
Comparing Santa Anna to Napoleon.
Comparing the Caddo to the Apache (or comparing other Native American groups in Texas).
Comparing French and Spanish colonization efforts in Texas
Comparing and contrasting colonization of Texas by the Spanish and Virginia by the English.
Comparing slavery by Native Americans and slavery by settlers in Texas (Spanish or American settlers).
Comparing Spanish colonization in South America or Asia and Spanish colonization in Texas.
