Responding to Rebellion 

Presidents Washington, Jackson, and Lincoln all dealt with concerns related to factionalism, sectionalism, and crises in the union. How did they respond? How did they apply executive authority? Join us as we examine key documents and engage your students in discussion analyzing how these presidents responded to threats and acts of rebellion. 

Through the 2023 Presidential Primary Sources Project Program, we are excited to partner with Andrew Jackson's Hermitage and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library for these sessions.
