Here are some suggestions for beginning your research.

Search the UCF library catalog for

  • Trail of Tears
  • Nullification (States Rights)
  • Sarah and Angelena Grimke
  • William Lloyd Garrison
  • The Great Triumvirate: John C. Calhoun, Daniel Webster, & Henry Clay (search for their papers)
  • Southampton Insurrection, 1831 (i.e., Nat Turner rebellion)
  • Rachel Jackson (Jackson's wife was accused of adultery during the 1828 election)
  • James Henry Hammond
  • The Ideology of Slavery: Proslavery Thought in the Antebellum South (E 449.I26)
  • Southern States -- History -- 1775-1865 -- Sources (subject heading search)

Aside from the catalog, a couple of other great sources for this topic would be the databases American Periodicals Series Online and American State Papers.
