Write an essay responding to the question below. Write an essay in response, 750-900 words (That would be a about 3 pages, double spaced, using Times New Roman 12 pt). This question is based on the required readings from Unit 6 (Cortes Meets Montezuma).
Essay question: Read the three eyewitness accounts of the first meeting between Hernan Cortes and the Aztec Emperor Moctezuma (also known as Montezuma or Motecuzoma). Use the three sources to construct your own narrative of what happened. Indicate in your narrative where the sources disagree, or are just different, and explain why you chose one source over another. Compare your result to the one from The Course of Mexican History (the fourth required reading). Discuss why yours is different (for example, you put emphasis on different things, or gave more weight to certain sources.)
