Program Description   Discover the implications that the American Revolution had on ideas of freedom and liberty. Students will examine the relationship between enslaved African Americans and the American Revolution through an investigation of Lord Dunmore’s Proclamation, James Lafayette’s petition, and Peter Sublett’s manumission.

This program will introduce your students to a different primary source, through a guided inquiry process. The students will engage in primary source analysis and interpret the importance of the primary source, and place it into historical context. The source will be aligned to both the Virginia and national standards, and will also be paired with replica artifacts to help further illuminate the meaning. This interactive program will end with a period for questions and answers.
Program Format   1. Introduction to primary source.
2. Analysis of source, placing it in historical context.
3. Time is allowed for questions and answers.
Objectives   Through discussion, reading, and examination of primary source documents, students will:
1. Use reading comprehension and context clues to discover the relationship between enslaved African Americans and the American Revolution.
2. Use critical thinking, reading, and writing skills to analyze primary sources and determine the different stories surround freedom before and after the American Revolution.
3. Understand the implications that the American Revolution had on ideas of freedom and liberty.
