This source can help us better our understanding of the basic function and statement of the American Ant-Slavery Society. It includes direct quotations referencing the American Anti-Slavery Society’s actually mission statement and traces back some of its roots. I rate this source with medium priory because by understanding the cause and origin of the American Anti-slavery Society we could perhaps draw conclusion about its future engagements that were not document or recorded. Although Suffield was not directly mentioned in this document we could use its content to help establish connections between like events and probable causes.

This source is perhaps the most interesting and exciting recorded work that I have come across yet! Its content highlights the successful escape of nine fugitive slaves through the Underground Railroad. I would rank this source with high priority. Although this source has a surface value of minimal content, its underbelly is great. This content opens the door to an endless supply of successful recorded escapes. And perhaps as we collaborate and gather additional sources we could re-trace the routes that these successful fugitives used. It would also be interesting to analyze who the publisher was and their position on slavery.
“Underground Railroad.” Http://search.proquest.com. Hartford Daily Courant, n.d. Web. 10 Feb. 2014.
This source includes a slave narrative from the Hartford Courant. It is most interesting to analyze this source because its content expresses and unveils a personal encounter to the injustices of slavery and the power of the Underground Railroad. I would rate this source a High. Although Suffield is not directly mentioned in this source, its message must not be taken lightly. We could use this sources message to express other encounters that slaves had on the Underground Railroad and perhaps re-trace their route to see if Suffield was ever used as a stop on the Underground Railroad.
