ENG 241 Homework #9 How did Douglass specifically work to shake up and agitate that crowd? Douglass shook up and agitated the crowd because he did not allow them to believe that slavery was a harmless, docile concept. He told them the horrible truths about what actually happened on slave plantations, without embellishing or taking away any detail. Douglass explained the reality of the slavery situation, and gave them graphic descriptions of how slaves were beaten and abused. How did he use his words and construct his phrases, sentences, and paragraphs in such a way that would drive his quiet, peace loving audience into a kind of frenzy, a frenzy that would ultimately lead them, and those of future audiences, to support what would become a very bloody and violent Civil War against the Southern states, which would later secede from the Union? Frederick Douglass generally spoke to groups of northerners, who were against slavery, but had never experienced it firsthand.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
