PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Help your students hone their DBQ skills!

This DBQ Practice question is based on the slavery debate of
the 1800s.

A.
Question Posed:

In mid-19th century USA, many northern Americans viewed slavery as an evil, while many southerners defended the institution. The slavery debate ultimately led to a deeper division of the nation and Civil War. Even later historians have also disagreed as to the nature of slavery and its place in both American and Antebellum society. Why did the sides hold such opposing views and what arguments are made to support it?

Use these documents and your outside knowledge to compose your answer.


B.
Following are 10 sources, ranging from paintings of the slave experience, extracts from the writings of later historians (both views), and viewpoints from the era (George McDuggie, Henry Bibb, The National Anti-Slavery Convention).

C.
This DBQ practice question can be used in supplement to your US History unit on slavery, the civil war, secession, etc. I recommend that students already have some foundation knowledge of the period, and the different perspectives of North and South.
