BE SURE TO CAREFULLY READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS
Primary source documents are windows into the past – the words provide access into the ideas and thoughts of those who lived the history being studied. In order to peer through that window, we need to understand the context for those words, what led to the issues they describe, what caused those involved to take the positions they promoted, and what happened that prompted the authors to put those particular words to paper.
Each chapter in the Foner, “Give Me Liberty” text contains a Voices of Freedom (VOF) and each VOF consists of two primary source documents that deal with aspects of a particular historical issue. Some of the VOF documents present contrary positions of a historical debate while others merely present diverse perspectives on an issue, an event or a policy. Read the chapter in which the VOF is contained in order to understand the context for the documents in the VOF.
