The stories presented in this site are completely fictional, but they were based off of historical events that took place in American History. Many of the sources used for this website were primary documents from archives regarding slavery, the abolition movement, and the Antebellum period.
The goal of this website is to create a learning resource tool for kids entering into their 8th grade year learning about American History in their school curriculum. This site is to be used as a tool to better explain the concepts and overarching themes seen in the light of history and display them in a way that is applicable and understandable to the appropriate age level.

Those who were moved to Auschwitz and other concentration camps were stripped of their freedom and basic human rights. The inmates were used as slaves, given very limited to access to basic human necessities such as food and clothing, and were dehumanized and tortured. Those who escaped the immediate death of gas chambers and had hope for eventual liberation often didn't live long enough to be freed in 1945. The deprivation of nutrition and protection resulted in many deaths from causes such as hunger, dehydration, disease, exhaustion, abuse from guards, from Mengele's experiments and many other extreme experiences.
Our project documents the various travel patterns of those victimized in concentration camps by Josef Mengele during the Holocaust.

We seek to understand and illustrate the journeys and stories of indentured servants who traveled across the Atlantic from Europe to the Middle Colonies in Colonial America and arrived between 1600 to 1775, with a focus on demographics. Specifically, the statistics we included demonstrate relationships between class and gender. Our sources come from a range of backgrounds including topics on the Early American labor forces, studies on the transition from a British to American lifestyle, indentured servant migration patterns, and various first-hand accounts from colonial indentured servants. The combination of primary, scholarly, and statistical sources should lead us to answer our major research questions: Where did indentured servants typically come from and why? What did they leave behind in England and what did they find in their new lives in America? What were these immigrants looking for? This is where the demographics we found play in: What do the differences between class and gender look like for where indentured servants are coming from and looking for? We looked specifically at migration patterns, lifestyle, and census information from both England and the Colonies to supplement the initial research. This provided a wider view of the lives of indentured servants in the Colonies and how they compared to their previous lives in England.

This website explores the women's right movement (1848-1920) with an emphasis on suffrage and how it relates to freedom.

The history of Barbados, an eastern Caribbean island, directly relates to the idea of freedom and movement throughout the world. In our research, we highlight Barbados’ specific history between the late 1600s through the early 1800s to represent three main ideas regarding slavery and travel: the history leading up to Bussa’s Rebellion (1816), the events surrounding the Slavery Abolition Act of 1833, and the Triangular Trade Route.
