----------

In this highly-engaging investigation, students investigate seven stations on the life, character, and actions of John Brown in the buildup to the American Civil War. The investigation begins on John Brown's role in Bleeding Kansas following the Kansas-Nebraska Act and moves forward from there. Students investigate how northerners and southern viewed John Brown, how he was treated once he was arrested, his motivation (and justification) for his actions in Kansas and again at Harper's Ferry, and how he was viewed following his execution.

In the end, students will have analyzed a plethora sources (over 17 sources of great variety!) to understand the polarizing figure known as John Brown. To conclude, students will complete a 5-step assessment packet where they detail what they have learned and provide an answer and justification for the overarching question: Should John Brown be remembered as a Hero or a Criminal?

Enjoy!
