People have been taking stands throughout human history. From little to big, individual to large groups, non-violent resistance to full-blown rebellions, these stands have taken many different shapes and supported many different causes. Explore a few of the examples that we have in HSP’s collections about “taking a stand” and figure out why these stands were so important!
We have separated our topics into three main categories: action, rebellion, and individuals. Choose your favorite or enjoy all three as you look for the perfect topic for this year’s National History Day! Get an extra jump-start by checking out this short video.
