Vu Pham Professor Sunshine McClain History 170 May 22, 2016 Abraham Lincoln Does Not Deserve To be The Great Emancipator Abolition of slavery was a big controversy in the United State of America in the nineteenth century due to the different stances between northern and southern states which led to the American Civil war. At the present time, Abraham Lincoln was the president of the United States who supported the north (Union) thought that free the slave could help him united all the states. As the result, he passed out the Emancipation Proclamation on September 22, 1862, which give freedom to slaves in the states that the Union did not control. After the war, he issued the Thirteenth Amendment on December 6, 1865, to free all slaves.
The American Civil War was a war fought over equality. The country was split into North and the South, the union and the confederates. The war was sparked by the election of the sixteenth president Abraham Lincoln in 1860. A month after Lincoln took office the Civil War would officially start. President Lincoln wanted to get slavery out of the states.
The American Civil War was a period of internal conflict in the United States that took place from April 12, 1861 to May 13, 1865. The war divided the 34 states into two separate entities: the Union and The Confederacy. The Union was composed of the states that remained loyal to the U.S. Constitution and federal government, while the Confederate States of America seceded. Following Lincoln’s inaugural address in 1861, South Carolina became the first state to secede from the Union, quickly followed by the other states that would make up the Confederacy. The build up to the war, however, began long before.
The Civil War is a war that took place after the South seceded from the United States of America and formed the Confederate States of America. In this war, the North side of the nation fought the South side of the nation. The North fought to preserve the Union and did not think secession was legal. They feared the disunion of all states in the United States of America. The North went to war after the Confederacy bombed Fort Sumter.
Abraham LIncoln was the 16th president of the united states and served as president during the Civil war. On November 6, 1860 Lincoln won the presidential election and not one person in the South voted for him. Lot’s of states talked of secession after Lincoln became president and the election was one on the primary reasons the Civil war Happened. The Civil war basically started when the South did not let the confederates restock Fort Sumter after Lincoln told them to, there was a 34 hour battle until finally the federal defenders had to surrender. During the war Lincoln had trouble finding good generals for his armies.
The Civil War was fought because of rising tension between the North and the South. The war came to an end 1865. The last official battle was at Palmito Ranch. The Civil War was a war fought because people’s opinions and views were put at risk with the election of Abraham Lincoln because citizens knew he would be the one to end slavery. Southerners seceded from the United States in an effort to keep what they felt was economically necessary and essential to their way to life.
A common controversy in American history is the fact that Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves. Many claim that he freed them with the Emancipation Proclamation but it’s more complex than that. There were many events that helped free slaves and the Emancipation was only a small portion of America’s journey to freedom and “equality”. In reality, Lincoln helped the process of freeing the slaves but, he did not do it himself.
Uncompromising differences between the South (Confederacy) and the North (Union) created a civil war that lasted five years. During this war, Abraham Lincoln was president. His election led to the secession of many Southern states. After refusing to recognize the Confederacy as its own nation, the American Civil War commenced in 1861. The three main causes of the Civil War between the North and the South were industrial and agricultural economies, politics, and slavery.
The American Civil War was the war that ended slavery. The civil war was known as one of the bloodiest and deadliest conflicts the United States had ever seen. The loss of life was an estimated amount of 620,000 men. It lasted four years, from April 12, 1861, through May 9, 1865. However, while slavery was a major cause of the American Civil War, there were several other major factors.
Both of these sections had many different opinions, either economically, politically, or socially, that soon led up to the Civil war. During this time, in the North Abraham Lincoln was elected as the president, while in the South Jefferson Davis was elected as the president. The Civil war was caused by the different opinions between the Northern and Southern states opinions on states seceding from the union, and views on slavery. The differences between the North’s opinions and the South's opinions on secession caused many discrepancies that soon helped lead up into the Civil war.
On April 12, 1861, a brutal war broke out between the north and the south called the Civil War. Some say the north, or Union, went to war to abolish slavery, but the south, or Confederates, went to war for states’ rights. Abraham Lincoln, who was president at the time, called the nation “a house divided” because the north and south did not agree. Four long years later, the Union won the victory on May 9, 1865.
The Civil war started when the Southern states seceded by the Union. “Apprehension seem to exist among the people of the Southern States. The war still continued even though Lincoln believed there should not be any enemies against anyone in the United States. Glory for the private soldiers were different for the officers.
Civil War The Civil War was from 1861-1865 . During the Civil War Abraham Lincoin was the president of the United States of America . In the South the president was Jefferson Davis not of the U.S.A but of the Confederate States of America . The North won the Civil War because they had more guns , men , and more ammo .
The Civil War is one of the most important and significant event in the American history. The Civil War occurred between 1861 and 1865 in what was the battle to determine the survival of the United States of America as a sovereign state with indivisible federal government. The Civil War where Confederate States of America sought secession from the United States was successful in the sense that the seven Southern states that sought independence from the United States failed. In 1865, all the Confederate armies surrendered ending the war and bolstering the United States as one nation where the South agreed to be part of the larger US.
President Lincoln was elected in 1860, and his election marked the end of peace between the North and the South for almost two decades. Between 1860 and 1865 the blood of over half a million soldiers from both sides of the country would be shed, and from 1865 to 1877 countless others would die in the name of military reconstruction. However, military reconstruction and civil war are simply byproducts of social and constitutional developments that led up to the revolution. Constitutional and social developments between 1860 and 1877 only served to widen the schism between the North and the South, eventually leading to a revolution.
