“Annals of American History.” Annals of American History. N.p., n.d. Web. 10 Feb. 2014.<http://america.eb.com/america/article?articleId=385815&query=anti+slavery+society&gt;.

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.

 

“Underground Railroad.” Http://search.proquest.com/hnphartfordcourant/. ProQuest,

n.d. Web. 10 Feb. 2014.         <http://search.proquest.com/hnphartfordcourant/docview/553123362/14A7886D  ACF4390PQ/11?accountid=40376>.

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.

<http://search.proquest.com/hnphartfordcourant/docview/553260840/C594A289  FA674363PQ/18?accountid=40376>.

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.

    This is great, it gives us the brief summary, how it can help us, and a specific interest in each cite. Would it be possible to get your username and password so that we could access the cites? I don’t think there is anything that I can polish. Good job!

    Nicely done Jack, I think you did a great job providing some information on these sources. Which of these sources do you think is worth spending the most time on? The only thing I would improve upon is including some dates on when these articles were written. Overall nicely done.

    This is solid work Jack, very nice job with explaining exactly what we can get out of each site. What is your favorite source out of these? Other than maybe including some dates for your articles there are not many corrections that can be made here.

    Good work with the sites Jack! It seems as if the second source is your favorite. Is there any specific information that you could share with us, maybe you could dive deeper into the source and tell us more about it for the next HOT log topic?

    Good work with these sources jack. Would you recommend writing a HOT log on any of these sources? Also, which one of these holds the most academic value? Maybe work on the title a bit but besides that great job.
