In 2016 as part of HIST-303, US History from 1607 to 1877, the class was assigned a letter written by abolitionist Abbey Kelley to transcribe and analyze. Below you will find the transcription produced by myself and the group of classmates I worked with.

The different colors were used to signify edits made to another person’s transcription and to make it easier for the others in the group to find the words we were unsure were transcribed correctly. There were still notable gaps in the transcription when the assignment was turned in but the group had completed enough to know the majority of the contents of the letter.
