Here are the Identifications you need to do for the final exam. Each term must include two parts:  the definition (basic description of who or what it is–should be a solid paragraph consisting of several sentences) and the significance (by which I mean the importance to history and to you–also a nice solid paragraph of several sentences telling me why you think it has meaning historically and why you found it important–your reaction is most important to me).

You may use any resources for getting the information: Assigned readings, general histories, internet. Whatever shource you use, please write the definition in your own words.
