This Traveling History Classroom contains a hands-on study of the antislavery movement and Quakers, and how they influenced the First Women's Rights Convention. It includes a study guide that used documents, images, diary and letter excerpts, and reproduction items and clothing to explore how Quakers and antislavery reformers brought about the Seneca Falls Convention.
