Identify two parts of chapter 10 that struck you the hardest from Frederick Douglass’ descriptions. Create a T Chart with quotes on the left and your response on the right.

1) What should be done about the newly freed slaves? Should they get something (land, jobs, etc.) from the government?
2) How should the Confederates (those who wanted to seceed from the Union) be handled? Jail? Excused from war crimes?
3) Is education of the citizens a priority? What about blacks? What about women?
4) Who should pay to rebuild the railroads, buildings, and homes that were destroyed during the war?
5) What other issues might be on the minds of citizens in both the North and the South now that the slave economy is gone? Will the price of cotton go up? Will there be more jobs? Less?
Think about these ideas, and pretend you are President. Develop a plan of action that the government can follow to help rebuild the nation
