Provide a description of the events/concepts listed below, including a description of each, the way in which it was significant, the reasoning behind actions committed, and such.  Bulleted lists are certainly encouraged, but these lists must certainly reflect detail.  This does not mean, however, that you should reproduce sources, such as your textbook or online sources, in their entirety--but in bullet form.  You must include a listing of your sources, in MLA format, following your chart.  Internal citations are not necessary.
