Free African-Americans in Delaware

Students work in groups of two and review the Abolitionist Movement. They observe the manumission/city directory and discover what it is and why it is so important. They read the manumission aloud and discuss why they were freeing their slaves and if they thought the pressure of the Quakers and other religious groups had an effect on the slaveowners.
