US History – Slave Uprisings in North America

As we begin to narrow our suspects of who caused the Civil War (and therefore is to blame for the deaths of 620,000 Americans), today we consider whether the various slave uprisings of North America in the 19th century are to blame.

You will be completing a WebQuest to understand more about this time period. When you finish email your completed WebQuest to jose@mrvalenzuela.com (name it “Lastname_firstinital_Slavery WebQuest) by 3:30p.m. on TUESDAY MAY 24!
