Use your outline to draft your essay.  You must add commentary and analysis. 

Remember, the most common mistake regarding this essay is writing a biography or report instead of an analysis of the long and short-term impacts of your assigned individual/group/event.  In order to avoid this common mistake, include all relevant background information in the Introduction.  This means that your Introduction might be quite lengthy in order to logically lead to a well-developed thesis statement.  Also, remember that when writing a history research paper, a snappy start is not necessary and is often quite distracting.  It may be preferable not to begin your Introduction with a quote unless you are absolutely certain that you have a relevant quote that sums up the essence of your paper (like in the Sample Student Paper).  Otherwise, just begin with background information.   

Also, consider your audience - your teacher.  You should be using formal academic language to write your paper.  For help in using this sophisticated vocabulary, see the Academic Language Guide.
