HIST-2010 Essay Due Thursday June 29 in hard copy and on D2L Summer 2017 Write an argumentative, 4-6 page (1200 to 2000 word) essay addressing the following question: Based on your reading of The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, how did slaveholders keep slaves loyal and/or from running away? Form a central argument around which to structure your work. Do not simply list examples. Use extensive evidence from the work itself, being sure to cite page numbers if you quote or paraphrase. The essay should be typed, double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12-point font, 1-inch margins. Your essay will be evaluated based on the following criteria: 1) How clearly and convincingly it answers the question, complete with a clear thesis established in the introductory paragraph 2) How effectively it includes relevant and specific examples from the text to illustrate your ideas 3) How clearly it is written and carefully proofread The quality of your writing affects the strength of your argument, as well as whether I can read it and make sense of it. Feel free to use the Writing Center in the library as a resource to proofread your paper. Please come to me with specific questions and concerns about the assignment. Below are some technical & stylistic matters to keep in mind in writing & turning in your paper. 1- Include page numbers and staple your essay. It must be turned in IN HARD COPY and on D2L by the beginning of class to be considered on time. Upload your document onto D2L in .doc, .docx, or .pdf format. 2- Use the active voice and avoid passive voice whenever possible (Tell me who did something instead of saying “it was done” or “there was,” or “it happened,” etc.) 3- Avoid first person—“I”—and second person—“you.” 4- Do not use contractions (“can’t”). 5- Write in the past tense since Frederick Douglass is no longer with us. 6- Don’t feel constrained by the generic five-paragraph model. Break your paragraphs when your major point of argumentation changes. It is rare that a paragraph should be longer than a page. 7- Do not write in fragments. Sentences must contain a subject and verb. 8- In using parenthetical page references after a quotation, the punctuation mark follows the parenthesis—it does not fall within the quotation itself. E.g. “Here is a quote” (Douglass 56). 9- You should use the assigned version of the Douglass text. Since this is the only source you will use, you will not need a works cited page. 10- When quoting or paraphrasing from a direct source, include a page number. 11- Don’t present a quotation by itself. Always integrate it into your own words as smoothly as possible. Don’t begin or end a paragraph with a quotation. 12- Don’t use others’ work and pass it off as your own. Do not use direct passages from the text without using quotes. Consult with me if you have questions about plagiarism. Plagiarism is very easy to detect and is not worth the repercussions. 13- Incorporate a title that is suggestive and indicative of your main point in the essay 14- Proofread for clarity! If you don’t know what you meant, I certainly don’t. ...

The Connection between Slavery and Loyalty
Slavery continues to be considered one of the most historic parts of American history.
Slavery was when white people had control over their black counterparts and forced them under
ownership. The black counterparts were named slaves and they were forced into inhuman living
conditions, beatings, torture and forcibly restricted beyond their will. In the Narrative of the Life
of Frederick Douglass there are many examples of how slaveholder’s managed to keep slaves
loyal and from running away. Slaveholder’s managed to keep slaves loyal and from running
away through physical abuse, deprivation of education and the ideology that salves were
property.
Slaveholder’s could keep slaves loyal and from running away through the use and threat
of physical abuse. Physical abuse was a normal activity for a slave and the idea of being
physically abused deterred slaves from attempting to run away. Frederick Douglass explained
about the abuse that was given by overseers, “If a slave was convicted of any high misdemeanor,
became unmanageable, or evinced a determination to run away, he was brought immediately
here, severely whipped, put on board the sloop, carried to Baltimore, and sold to Austin
Woolfolk, or some other slave-trader, as a warning to the slaves remaining” (Douglass 11). The
witness and threat of physical abuse taught slaves to be loyal to their master and prevented slaves
from attempting to escape.
Slaves were starved and physical abused as a mean to prevent slaves from escaping.
Slaves were provided with a small amount of fo...
