Explain how the new fugitive slave law and Uncle Tomʹs Cabin both increased sectional tensions in the 1850s. How did abolitionists react to the fugitive slave law? How did pro-slavery southerners react to Uncle Tom’s Cabin? Provide historical concrete examples of reactions from each side.
Task 1: Create a new discussion topic on or before the required date/time by clicking the ‘**REPLY HERE**’ post. Develop a substantive main thread addressing each part of the prompt in full. Your initial thread should be 2-3 paragraphs in length (200+ words total). Support your points with examples or illustrations from the text. Quotations/citations are not strictly required, but APA style should be used if quoting or paraphrasing from the literature or outside sources. Review the How-To Guide: APA Formatting and Citations page (linked in class) as needed.
Task 2: After you have created and posted your main response, you are then required to read and respond to a minimum of 2 of your classmate’s discussion posts. All substantive replies count, whether it be replies to several classmates’ main post, or multiple replies to a single classmate (substantive replies to your professor would also count for credit). Think of your responses in terms of a contribution to an ongoing academic dialogue. Incorporate what you have learned from the weekly reading material and from your own real-world experiences. Again, don’t forget to use proper APA documentation whenever necessary.

1. Essays must be 4 pages long. More than 4
pages is too long and you have
probably written too much; less than 4
pages is too short and you probably have
not written enough.
2. Students are required to use 3 primary
sources (no more, no less) in their papers.
Students
are also allowed to use the textbook, but sparingly. No
other sources of any kind may be used in this paper. If you use other sources, you will
automatically fail. You must choose from the primary sources which
we have read in class.
3. Writing will be, as always, a significant
factor in your grade. Your writing
should
be clear, concise, well-organized, and
free from all spelling and grammatical
errors and typos. If your paper lacks an argument, your essay
will be marked down
three full grades. Please see the “Writing Guide” (posted on
Blackboard) for
stylistic and formatting rules, as well
as hints for finding and correcting common
writing errors. Students are strongly encouraged to take
their papers to the
campus Writing Center and/or the History
Department tutor and/or make appointments
with me before submission.
4. Citations for all material used in the paper
are required. Plagiarism will not be
tolerated—any
evidence of plagiarism or academic dishonesty of any kind (including
failing to properly cite evidence) will
result in an automatic failure.
