Examine three contemporary newspaper/magazine accounts of an historical protest act by a dissenter and analyze how that person or event was reported at the time. For example, after you read the account of Susan B. Anthony?s 1873 trial in the Dissent in America reader access the library databases listed in the DiA Library Guide and write a 2-page report on how at least three of the periodicals or newspapers (e.g., the New York Times, Harper?s, McClure?s, etc.) reported on Anthony?s trial. Do the newspaper accounts at that time reveal animosity or support for Susan B. Anthony?s protest? What do the media accounts show about attitudes toward women?s rights in 1873?
