Assignment #2 Slavery and Freedom in Northern and Southern Communities Form groups of 3-4 persons. Using the Valley of the Shadow database, research the status of African Americans in the north and the south either (1) right before the Civil War or (2) during the Civil War or (3) after the Civil War. Begin by clicking on the Differences Slavery Made: Two American Communities here or on the online syllabus. Data exist for two communities, Franklin County in Pennsylvania, a free state before the Civil War, and Augusta County Virginia, a slave state before the Civil War. The second link African American Life, North and South 1860 connects you to the data for these two places. Data are divided by three time periods, before, during, and after the Civil War. Each person in the group should choose a different type of source (statistics, newspapers, diaries and letters, church records, public records etc.) and be responsible for what that source tells the reader about the situation of African Americans (both enslaved and free) in each community. Each group will collectively write one paper of 4-6 pages. At the end, the group should come to some conclusion about what difference freedom made in the lives of these Civil War era people. Papers will be presented in section. Grades will be based on the paper and the presentation.
