HIST 101 Week 6 Forum You have been divided into two groups. For this forum, Group A (last name A-L) will assume the role of an individual opposed to slavery, while Group B (last name M-Z) will argue in support. The following is a statement from the social theorist George Fitzhugh. Each of you should post a statement in support, or in opposition to Fitzhugh’s argument. Try not to make assumptions. Instead, assume the historical role of someone who lived in the United States in the period prior to the Civil War. Not all Northerners opposed slavery, and not all Southerners favored it. You could be a plantation owner, a slave trader, or a Southern politician. Conversely, you can be an abolitionist, a Northern politician, or even a slave. Be creative. After your initial submission, you are then required to continue the debate by responding to three of your classmates. Your responses should contribute to the dialogue. Your initial response is due by 11:55 pm, ET, Friday and your responses to 3 other students by 11:55 pm, ET, Sunday.
