Heya, I'm going to put this in the history forum for you as you should get more responses there.

You should also check out the forum to see if there's any other threads there which might be helpful to you! http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=141

What areas of american history do think you're interested in?

American political history is also a super interesting topic, particularly relating to American foreign policy. There's a lot of very topical, heated debate about it.

I'm thinking of studying the American civil war and asking how far the view that the Union was the 'good side' and the Confederacy was the 'bad side' is true.

I was also tempted on looking at the American revolution, and maybe asking whether it was the tea tax that caused it or something (bc I swear I heard that tea was involved at some point).

I would reword your question if you are wanting to study the American Civil War- 'To what extent did the Union display hypocrisy in its justification for fighting the American Civil War'? (or something like that)

The American revolution would be good- 'To what extent did short term factors such as the tax on tea cause the American Revolution'? (again or something along those lines)

American imperialism during the 19th century could be good?- 'To what extent can the United States pre-1898 be considered an imperialist nation'?
