"For two hours, 2,000 excited citizens led by soldiers, sailors, and marines, besieged Cameron House, the headquarters of the National Woman’s Party, while one policeman wandered uneasily through the crowd."
On August 14, 1917, during U.S. involvement in WWI, members of Alice Paul’s National Woman’s Party were attacked by an angry mob of men for their banner addressed to “Kaiser Wilson.” This resource contains two adapted primary source accounts of the shocking event. One source is a newspaper report, and the other is by Doris Stevens, a member of the NWP. Also included is a compare and contrast activity.

Don’t worry about compatibility! A common problem with editable resources is wonky text. This is a result of the original creator using fonts that you do not have on your computer. To avoid this problem, this resource is created using the common fonts of Arial and Georgia. Additionally, the PowerPoint version is saved as a 97-2003 Presentation, which is compatible with versions 1997 and up.
New to using PowerPoint for printable lessons? I used to be a Word user and found the transition very easy. If you find that you still need some support, reach out with an email and I’d be happy to help!
