Essay questions by chapter:
8. Compare and contrast the roles of women in agricultural south and in the industrial north [Ch. 9 & 10]
during the early Antebellum period. How did ideas of gender underpin plantation society? How did ideas
of gender shape responses to the Lowell factory strikes? In your answer, give specific examples of the
Lowell girls experiences and of southern chivalry & misogyny.
9 -10. How did the market revolution change the nature of labor in the north, and how did the invention of the
cotton gin impact the nature of labor in the south in the early republic? How did American reformers
respond to the abuses of these labor systems in the north and south? In your answer, be sure that you
focus on the issue of labor and avoid straying into more social reforms such as temperance.
11. How did westward expansion lead to political conflict between the interests of the north and south
between 1840 and 1850? In your answer, you must discuss the impact of Manifest Destiny, the Texas
Revolution, and the Mexican American War on the politics of representation in Congress.
12. The Baltimore Sun, in November 1859 published, That the South can afford to live under a Government,
the majority of whose citizens…regard John Brown as a martyr as a Christian hero, rather than a
murderer…is a preposterous idea.” Explain how the actions of John Brown illustrate fundamental
economic and moral disagreements between the north and south in the 1850s that lead to Civil War. In
your answer, discuss free labor, the fugitive slave law, and Christian defense of slavery.
13. Despite loathing slavery, Lincoln embraced emancipation as a war objective late and with great caution,
why? In your answer, trace the progression of Lincoln’s position, considering how legal, political,
military and moral concerns influenced his policies.
