You create your own narrative. You fit is into the history of the time. You tell the story as it might have been. It is not research or a formal paper. It s simply reading the material. And then telling.
You have a book, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, that you need to familiarize yourself with in order to do the paper.
What you are to do for the paper is to write a historical fiction about Matthew Dutton. You may wish to ‘be him in the first person” or create a fictional character.
The first part talk about the Beecher family and the abolition movement and the influence of Uncle Tom’s Cabin.
Talk about Dutton moving from his home in New York to participate in Bleeding Kansas.
Talk about helping the African Americans escape slavery and fighting against those who wish to turn Kansas into a “slave state”
While there is much out there that is pure history about the Dutton family, I have found little to tie the story together so tight that historical fiction cannot be used to tell an important truth. (there are few times I use the word truth)
That truth is people act upon what they believe to be true. Here is a family who were mostly Yale graduates, one had been President of Yale, and others were ministers. Yet they left a rather secure life in the North East to fight for a cause. Yes Harriett Beecher Stowe wrote a very influential book but it was people acting upon the belief that slavery was so wrong that they would leave their home and move to Kansas to fight, using Beecher Bibles no less. Please tell a good story. Use pictures. As far as length, I would say that 4 to 6 pages will do. Tell me your sources. I have given you some and hope to give you more. I will have a separate question and source board for this. It is not due yet but many of you seem to want to know about the paper so here it is.
