How to Use This Resource
Documentary TimelineThe main feature of Truth-Telling: Frances Willard and Ida B. Wells is the Timeline of the conflict between the two leaders. The Timeline takes readers through the story in chronological order. Each page features at least one original primary source document that helps to explain what happened. The documents are accompanied by introductory text that places them in context. Some of them also contain in-line annotations that help to make sense of dense nineteenth-century prose.
Context and Further ReadingFor more background on the complex issues at play in this conflict, turn to the Essential Context section. Each page contains a short essay with more information on topics like temperance, women's suffrage, and Reconstruction. Then check out Bibliography/Further Reading
for sources and recommendations for more in-depth study. The About This Project / Contact Us page provides background on this project and how it got started.
