Overview: In 1862 Lord Acton wrote, “Nationalism neither aims at liberty nor prosperity, both of which it sacrifices to the imperative necessity of making a nation the mold and measure of the state. Nationalism thus does not liberate the mind and spirit — it imprisons them.”
Taking into consideration nationalist movements in the 19th century (that, is 1800s and NOT the 1900s), you will write a persuasive essay arguing either that nationalism was a positive movement or that it was a negative movement. You need to point to specific historical examples and events from the 19th century (again, the 1800s) to support each of your essay.

The 18th century was host to a significant amount of nationalistic movements. The French revolution served as inspiration for other would-be nation states to unite and attempt to overthrow the monarchy’s and install a constitutional government. The roads to a constitutional government tended to be wrought with violence, nationalism help develop the infrastructure of the nations, inspired its people to succeed, and would give the nation a position of strength. Besides the French revolution, other important nationalistic movements to study are the Unification of Italy, and Otto Von Bismarck’s unification of Germany. Although 18th century nationalism often lead to conflict and bloodshed throughout Europe, these movements inspired people to overthrow unfair governments, laid the foundation for the modern rights of citizens, and defined the responsibility of government.
