Teach with Primary Sources!
This 586 word excerpt from Angelina Grimke is a great example of Abolitionist's views and the difficulty they faced. The excerpt discusses resistance to abolition in the North, the cruelties of slavery, and the increasing sectionalism in the country. The reading comes with four questions and a list of teacher talking points and important quotes.
This was made for a South Carolina History class standard 8-4.2, but it will work for any class that teaches the Abolition movement and sectionalism.
