American History – Slavery
answer the following question to the best of your ability. I attached Chapters 10-12 of our textbook Eric Foner’s “Give Me Liberty,” as well as the lectures for Chapters 10-12, and an attachment with links for documents that correspond with these chapters. Please do not use any other sources besides the ones provided, as the professor is VERY strict and the attachments should be enough to formulate a quality answer. There is no need to put student name, date, etc. on the top of the paper – just jump right in and answer the question. Please strive for a “10-point” answer as explained in the grading rubric below. Thank you. The instructor’s prompt is as follows: This unit deals with the institution of slavery in a very comprehensive way.
