Interpreting the Past #3: First Amendment connection to Acts

One of the main jobs of historians is to interpret the past by reviewing primary documents, and scholarly secondary sources, and then creating an analysis of this research. After reading your text and reviewing the assigned materials, submit an analysis of how the First Amendment connects to the Espionage Act of 1917, the Sedition Act of 1918 & the Patriot Act of 2006.
You might want to consider the following questions, but you are not limited to them: Begin by reading the First Amendment to the Constitution, then review the Acts linked in the resources. What were the motives for & results of the acts? Do these acts allow for the freedom of speech as stated in the First Amendment? Are acts such as these justified in war times?
This assignment should be at least 300 words and contain your reactions or questions about some specific issue within the historical narrative that you find compelling. For full credit, your paper must not simply sum up the reading or repeat points made there. Rather, I’m looking for you to create your own interpretation, explain the emotional content of the piece, or discuss some original insight. Include citations as needed.
