This activity includes two internet based primary documents on John Brown and the raid on Harpers Ferry. The websites used are from a great primary source site, the Eye Witness to History site. http://www.eyewitnesstohistory.com/index.html
The following topics are covered in the primary document readings.
John Brown's Raid, 1859
John Brown Defends His Raid, 1859
Students read the documents and answer the questions. I usually print out the reading for the students, but you can have students answer the questions using the websites. These activities are great for reinforcing information or complimenting topics being taught in the classroom. The assignments can be used to generate classroom discussion or be used as homework. Feel free to modify them as needed for your classes.
