Campbellsville Middle School students recently learned about slavery in their social studies class.
In Kaye Agathen's classes, students discussed the Civil War, and learned about how slavery began and why it ended.
Agathen explained the Emancipation Proclamation to her students, and discussed how it, along with the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, ended slavery.
To end the unit, Agathen read "Henry's Freedom Box: A True Story from the Underground Railroad" by Ellen Levine.
The story is about a slave named Henry Brown who mails himself to the North so he can be free.
After the story, students tried to fit inside a box like the one Brown used to mail himself.
