Teaching a People's History of Abolition and the Civil War is a collection of 10 classroom-tested lessons on one of the most transformative periods in U.S. history. These lessons encourage students to take a critical look at the popular narrative that centers Abraham Lincoln as the Great Emancipator and ignores the resistance of abolitionists and enslaved people. The collection aims to help students understand how ordinary citizens with ideas that seem radical and idealistic can challenge unjust laws, take action together, pressure politicians to act, and fundamentally change society.
