A reading assignment about the events surrounding "Bleeding Kansas" and the slavery debate in the West, and the violence that occurred in the Senate between Brooks and Sumner. A great way to introduce the subject. The reading comes from a really great website, ushistory.org, under their free textbook tab. The information presented is theirs, I made up the questions. This can be done as a web quest assignment using the site. Perfect as a supplement, or if you don't have a textbook! Also great as a Sub Assignment. MS Word for easy editing.
