A Place Called Freedom by Scott Russell SandersSanders, S. R., & Allen, T. B. (1997). A place called Freedom. New York, NY: Atheneum Books for Young Readers.
Many African American families were trying to escape the clutches of slavery during the 1830s, and this story follows one of those families who escape from the plantation in Tennessee and slowly find their way to a place called Freedom in Indiana. Through their journey, we see the obstacles they face but how their perseverance helped them make it to the town founded by free slaves called Freedom. The painted illustrations had many soft colors and helped odd to the secrecy theme of the plot itself. We learn a lot about slavery in school, but it was interesting getting to see a place that was founded for free slaves called Freedom that kept growing and growing and became a home for those that were once slaves. I thought this would be a good book to pair with lessons about slavery and allows students to see what these families and to go through in order to find the lives they wanted. It teaches a really good lesson of working really hard in order to find what you are looking for.

His actions did not simply call into question the moral authority of the Church. His defiant stand gave voice to a sentiment that would eventually provide legitimation for disobeying all forms of authority. This intermeshing of religious and political conflict, which eventually led to the disintegration of a united Christendom, also provoked an irresolvable debate about the locus of religious authority. His theology of reform also opened up a wider debate on obedience and resistance to political rule.
Taylor writes: I'm a high school student and my history teacher just told us about how the United States once called French fries "freedom fries" to spite France. Please tell me he's joking. Yes, there was a time when some Americans decided to call French fries "freedom fries"—embarrassingly, a number of those people happened to be elected officials in the U. House of Representatives. In early , the United States was in the midst of a rather unsuccessful attempt to drum up worldwide support for a potential war with Iraq.

The Second World War was not just another crisis—it directly affected more people than any other conflict in history. Over million men and women were mobilized, a figure that easily dwarfs the number who fought in any previous war, including the Great War of — Hundreds of millions of civilians around the world were also dragged into the conflict—not only as refugees like Georgina Sand a Jewish child survivor , but also as factory workers, as suppliers of food or fuel, as providers of comfort and entertainment, as prisoners, as slave labourers, and as targets.

Four times as many people were killed in the Second World War as in the First.
