This collection of lesson plans, based on primary source documents, focuses on dramatic moments (and their wider context) of anticommunist hysteria.
Among sources included in the unit are excerpts from the Espionage Act of 1917 and the Sedition Act of 1918; the Supreme Court opinion in the Schenck case, establishing a “clear and present danger” standard; Attorney General Palmer’s comments on deportation of “Reds”; and the LaFollette Platform.
