(Page 2) Please read “Anti-Catholic Nativist Tact” by Samuel Morse, “The Nativist Press” by The Nativist Press, and “The New Colossus” by Emma Lazarus. Discuss and analyze the Nativist position, anti-Catholic/immigrant attitudes with an eye towards what prompted the fears and concerns of the Nativists. How does the “new Colossus” compare to the Nativist position? How do you reconcile the position expressed in the poem and placed on the Statue of Liberty with the Nativist views? Compare the Nativist position with that of some politicians today. Are there similarities and if so, what would you say accounts for those similarities.
(Page 3)Please read “Resistance to Civil Government” by Henry David Thorough. Discuss what form of government Thorough favored and what role he thought it should have over the day-to-day lives of people. What should the relationship be between the people and the government powers? Under what circumstances did he believe revolution was justified?
(Page 4)Using the web sites I include in this forum, discuss the who was involved, whe, where, how, and why of the witch hunts of New England. I am extremely curious to learn why you think they occurred. Be sure to include examples/quotations to back up your position.
