In the DBQ, what exactly would give you the point for context? Do I only need context in the intro that establishes historical context for all the documents, or I do I need context for each document I use?

Contextualization points come from setting up the historical context (usually 50-150ish years prior) of the argument you’re going to make.

Providing historical context for the topic of the essay in general will earn you the historical context point. You do not need to provide historical context for each document, unless you are using this as a way to earn the source analysis point.
