PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This worksheet includes an exchange of two incredible letters between Senator Joseph McCarthy and President Harry Truman. In the first letter, McCarthy makes a claim of possessing names of communists working in the US State Department. President Truman's amazing response calls out McCarthy for his tactics and calls him sorry and unfit for public office!

I use these to show some politicians stood up against McCarthyism during the Red Scare and often lead it into a discussion on standing up to bullies. There are 9 analysis questions included in the worksheet as well for students to answer.
