This article was published in November of 1917 in the New York Times to describe how the prison wards forced Alice Paul to eat raw eggs through a tube by strapping her to a chair. When this article was published, it made people realize how terribly women were treated, and forced the prison to release the confined Suffragettes.
This is a great PowerPoint lesson to help students understand how sectionalism affected America's growth from 1820-1860. The Missouri Compromise, Compromise of 1850, and Kansas-Nebraska Act are all explained along with maps that students color and identify. Each map includes a key for which students color and label free and slave states so they can see how each new agreement changed the shape of America. Background information is provided to help generate class discussion. A great lesson plan!
