Like the Federalists v. Antifederalists HAT, this assessment gauges students’ knowledge of the past, but in a way that goes beyond mere recall of facts. Students must draw on their understanding of history to identify the political position represented in a historical source and explain why the document was most likely part of the Republican Party’s platform in 1860.
