Product Description
This handout is a primary source analysis on the Pottawatomie Massacre where John Brown led a violent raid on a pro-slavery town. There is a short description of the historical context, then a primary source letter. Students read the primary source document then respond to questions about the document. There is also a constructed response where students write a paragraph and use details from the document to support their answer. I used this as an in class activity.
