The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History is pleased to present the fifth issue of HISTORY NOW, an online journal for history teachers and students, now available on the Web at www.historynow.org.
The current issue of HISTORY NOW examines the abolitionist movement in America. Ronald Walters and Sylvia Frey look at the history of the antislavery movement, Robert Abzug studies the influence of religion among the abolitionists, and Carol Berkin, Steven Mintz, and Margaret Washington tell the stories of individuals who fought for the abolitionist cause.
As always, we have asked a group of skilled, experienced, and creative teachers to provide exemplary lesson plans at various grade levels, and we have provided an extensive list of resources as well as an interactive map tracing a path to freedom in the 1850s.
