Like Morale After Fredericksburg, this assessment asks students to source and corroborate a document. In this assessment, students evaluate an excerpt from a 1908 Utah newspaper that makes claims about the influence that the Haymarket Affair had on the growth of anarchist groups in the United States. Question 1 asks students to evaluate whether the excerpt provides enough evidence to draw conclusions about the growth of anarchism in the United States at the end of the nineteenth century and beginning of the twentieth century. To answer this question, students must source the document to determine whether the account can be thought of as conclusive evidence. Question 2 asks students to evaluate whether additional documents could be used to corroborate the account.
