Product Description
This short biography on Denmark Vesey focuses on his origins on the West Indian island of St. Thomas, his intent to plot a slave rebellion in South Carolina and subsequent capture during the early 1820s, and his inspiration to the abolitionist cause of the antebellum period in the United States.

The biography includes a series of questions based on the reading.

In using this in my own class room, students are encouraged to:

1. Number the paragraphs

2. Read the biography

3. Highlight answers in the reading

4. Use complete sentences.

The answer key demonstrates these steps.

You can also purchase the product as part of a series I have posted on TpT: Biographies in American History. And please feel free to browse the store for other products related to US History, World History, and Government.
