"Liberty Rhetoric" and Nineteenth-Century American Women


"Liberty Rhetoric" and Nineteenth-Century American Women

Logo for
This site is an archive of primary sources (including songs, letters, poems, images, and speeches) and questions to ponder that help students examine and understand the rhetorical framework women used in the early nineteenth-century to argue for equal citizenship and to justify their civic engagement. The author shows how different groups used "liberty rhetoric" to assert their interests by focusing on the Lowell Mill Girls and the 1848 Declaration of Sentiments.

Considering that this is not meant as an online course it provides a good
collection of links and information about a specific topic during a specific
time period. It would be a nice augmentation to an American 19th century
history course.

Technical Remarks:

Considering it's purpose I'm rating it at 3 stars. This is medium quality
because the site construction is not highly user friendly (navigation tools) and
parts of the offering are inaccessible (no alt text or method for visually
impaired to learn about the images). It is however very simple and not
difficult to use. I'm concerned that some learners would get lost or need
assistance with objectives.
