Product Description

This is a short essay written by W.E.B. DuBois with questions included in which he discusses the legacy of Confederate leaders of the Civil War, specifically Robert E. Lee. DuBois explains the societal dangers and racial issues involved with remembering Lee in a positive manner, which reveals issues surrounding race in the 1920s worth discussing. This assignment works well as a springboard to discuss the 1920's, the Civil War, or modern debate surrounding the removal of Confederate monuments. I've used it across many different social studies classes. The analysis questions include two questions that ask students to draw conclusions from the document itself and the third question asks students to analyze how this essay is applicable to the modern day with an opinionated question on the proposed removal of Confederate monuments.
