For all the assignments, the reading for the courses are “voices of freedom” and Give me liberty by Eric Foner.
Lesson 8:Antebellum Slavery
As seems clear from “Frederick Douglass on the Desire for Freedom” (as well as Give Me Liberty! Ch. 11), enslaved people were not enthusiastic participants in slavery. And, by the 1840s, the US, Brazil, and Cuba were the only nations left in the Americas in which slavery was legal, so slavery was starting to seem anachronistic to many Americans. Given these impediments, why was the institution of slavery able to persist so long in the United States South? Use evidence from all three assigned documents (in addition to GML Chs. 9 and 11) to explain why you think this might have been the case.
Lesson 9:Social Movements and Sectionalism
Each of these three documents advances a vision of what the US has meant, and what direction it should go. How do the views of O’Sullivan, Douglass, and the Declaration of Sentiments differ? Are there any similarities between the three? How do you think each of these different visions of America led the US toward the political and social fracturing of the 1850s and 60s? Make sure to use the study guide and GML (chs. 12-13) to help support your answer.
