Launchpad: Slavery in Revolutionary Era

Created August 31, 2010

Was the American Revolution inevitable? This launchpad is designed to help students understand the transition to armed resistance and the contradiction in the Americans’ rhetoric about slavery through the examination of a series of documents. While it is designed to be conducted over a several-day period, teachers with time constraints can choose to utilize only one of the documents to illustrate the patriots’ responses to the actions of the British.
