Question Description

The TaskPlease answer the three essay questions below (please see) using college-level writing skills. Be sure that your answers are backed with specific historical evidence drawn from the works we've read so far – evidence that convinces me that you’ve read the Foner textbook and all relevant assigned books and documents. In completing this assignment, use no other materials than those assigned in our course. (NO OUTSIDE RESOURCES)

Citing Your Sources: Be sure to correctly cite the words you borrow.  If you borrow another author’s words, data, or ideas, use quotation marks to make clear what you've specifically borrowed, then immediately give a parenthetical citation telling me the work you've used, the author, and the page number. To NOT do this is to plagiarize, and that can lead to failing our class. 

Using another person’s words or ideas without citing their work or without using quotation marks to identify precisely what you’ve borrowed is plagiarism. Ignorance of the term is no excuse and it will earn you an “F” for the paper and a black mark on your academic transcript – the one that is sent to the college you hope to transfer to. 

In short, Good Student, do not plagiarize.

Other Specs: Each of the three mini-essays must each be, at minimum, 700 words long each.

If you wish to exceed the minimum word requirement, please do. In calculating your word total, I will not count your bibliography or title page, only the main body of the mini-essays themselves -- your answers. Also know that the essays must be double-spaced throughout, typed, and that you must use Times New Roman. Be sure the file is in rich-text format (.rtf). No exceptions. If I can't open your document for any reason, you will lose two full letter grades. (If you’re paper would have gotten an “A,” it can now only get a “C,” etc.) 

When you are done answering the three questions in three mini-essays of, at minimum, 700 words each, please submit them in ONE RTF FILE, not 3 separate ones. Read that again as well. (2100 words in total; 3 1/2 pages)

Do the best work you can, start early in drafting your essays, and use your own words. Your answers must use as much historical evidence as possible from as much of the assigned work as possible, so long as it's relevant. All of the textbook chapters we have covered so far, up to the deadline, should be utilized in framing your answer so long as they are relevant and improve your essay.  Those who ignore the Foner, our main textbook in the class, will lose points.

 Lincoln observed in 1864 that “we all declare for liberty, but in using the same word, we do not all mean the same things.” He continued to explain what the North meant and what the South meant, and how victory meant a national norm as defined by the North. Clear differences in what liberty meant can be found between the 1.) North and the South, 2.)between Lincoln and Stephen Douglas, 3.) between planter and factory-owner. What were those differences in the three groups I've just numbered? List at least 4 for each groups and discuss each separately and at length.

Each number should have at least 700 words and at least 4 differences.

I will send you the all the chapters related to this assignment once I select you as my tutor. 

Please cite within your answers like so: (Foner, pg. #).

This assignment should be 3 1/2 pages long (2100 words, 700 words per question).

I have fixed it, and tightened up the paragraph it was related to.  So it's the same amount of words and the same sentiment, but not a phrase-sentence.

Freedom and Liberty

There are many definitions of liberty, but first and most relevant and important to this situation is
the one that defines liberty as having free will. Freedoms both political and social that every single person
is entitled to have no matter what with the absence of any sort of restraint against doing so. The North
believed, at least in a general sort of way, that everyone was entitled to these freedoms. The South, for the
most part, absolutely did not.

Those who lived in the South believed that liberty and freedom could only be attained if slavery
existed. The argument, I suppose, is that somehow one cannot exist without the other. That a man can
only be a free man with liberty for himself if there is another man that is enslaved in bondage or forced to
not have free will by restraint. The North did not appear to believe that, but they did appear to benefit
from the slavery system. Northern manufacturers and merchants participated in slavery and there was
certainly sharing in the profits of it.

The men and women who lived in the Southern states claimed to live according to a code of
honor, but it seems to me that men of honor do not disparage, humiliate and imprison one class of citizen
and completely suppress another. And Abraham Lincoln even stated that those who put forth this
argument simply and truly were serving the interests of people who were putting forth a system of
inequality. (Foner, 408)

It is also true that those in the south did not consider slaves to be citizens. Why would they, when
they paid for them and treated them as property. Property had no rights, beyond what would keep them
moving, working and alive. And if they didn’t work, they barely even had that.


For many slaves, liberty meant escaping from their owners and going through many dangerous
paths to get to the North. The Underground Railroad is one example of a way that they would escape, and
for the most part it worked despite how dangerous the situation was. For some in the North, and a few
people in the South, liberty and freedom for all meant helping them to escape in these ways. It was more
dangerous for people in the South, because the South had past anti-fugitive laws while those in the North
had passed abolitionist laws. This was one of the things that ended up leading to the Civil War, but it was
