The second election was soon established, nevertheless, the result turned out to nothing as well. As a result, a war broke out. The president of the South sent armies to stop the war, and then held a third election, the election which ended up the same way as the first two. So, on January 29, 1861, Kansas became a slave-free state. The pro-slavery were really mad about the result and how the anti-slavery treated them.
From 1840 to 1861 the Civil War was unavoidable and was fought due to many circumstances at the time. Two of the main circumstances that helped build up tension and eventually led up to the Civil War was a failure of leadership and extremism on both sides, known as the South and the North. In document 1, it says how it was the abolitionist fault for pushing these ideologies that slavery was wrong and that the abolitionist attempted to agitate and they did agitate the north to go against slavery. This document is an example of extremism because due to the abolitionist trying to abolish slavery and show that slavery was wrong it caused more conflict. Due to this conflict, there was more of a disconnect and that pushed the states apart which
The Civil War was fought between the Northern States, known as the Union Army, and the Southern States, known as the Confederate Army. The Civil War started on April 12, 1861 and lasted until mid-1865. The Civil War arose out of deep disagreements regarding everything from State’s rights, but the primary cause was the contrasting views regarding slavery. While the Southern States supported continued slavery, the Northern States wanted to end this practice. Many scholars believe the Civil War was due to the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860, who supported the North, causing the Southern States to split from the United States.
SEGUNDA PEC MUNDOS ANGLÓFONOS. ABRAHAM LINCOLN GETTYSBURG ADDRESS 1863. MARÍA DEL MAR VIDAL VIÑA 26/03/2015 This is a political speech given by Abraham Lincoln during the American Civil War in Gettysburg ( Pensilvania ) on 19 of November in 1863, four and a half month after the Gettisburg Battle. Abraham Lincoln became the United States' 16th President in 1861, issuing the Emancipation Proclamation that declared forever free those slaves within the Confederacy in 1863. Lincoln believed that secession was illegal, and was willing to use force to defend Federal law and the Union.
The war didn’t yet officially begin until the confederate forces in South Carolina led an attack on Fort Sumter off its coast on April 12th,1861. This began the civil war. The civil war started in 1861 and lasted up till about 1865. Totaling around 620,000 it is considered the most gruesome war of the United States. When the war first began it seemed as if the South had the advantage over the North.
My intention with this essay is to give a wider understanding on why the speech happened and just what impact it has had on the country. So what was the events leading up to the Speech held that morning in November 1963? In the year 1860, the republican presidential candidate Abraham Lincoln was sworn into office as the president of the United States. The northerner had been a loud voice against the slavery that took place (mostly) in the south and with him winning the election, there was a lot of opposition from slavery-advocates. Lincoln was against slavery and with the possibility of his end-goal being the abolishment of slavery seven states where already done leaving the union before Lincoln had taken his place in the Oval Office.
The Civil War lasted from 1861 to 1865. This war freed over four million slaves and gave black men the freedom that they deserved. When the war was over President Lincoln established reconstruction to repair the damage that was done to the eleven states in the south. Reconstruction had many failures, reconstruction cost a lot of money so Lincoln had to raise taxes to afford the proper supplies to repair the south. Another one of its failures was during reconstruction the United
The law stated that the Confederates should commit “full and complete retaliation” against such people. Fort Pillow, on the Mississippi River north of Memphis, was built by confederate Brigadier General Gideon Johnson Pillow in early 1862 and was used by both sides during the war. With the fall of New Madrid and Island Number 10 to Union forces, Confederate troops evacuated Fort Pillow on June 4, in order to avoid being cut off from the rest of the Confederate army. Union forces occupied Fort Pillow on June 6 and used it to protect the river approach to Memphis. The fort

Lee: He was the South 's greatest general during the Civil War, and despite being from Virginia he decided to fight on the side of the
Thus, as soon as Abraham Lincoln was elected President, word spread in the South that Lincoln was going to use powers from the federal government to put a legal end to slavery. Thus, the Northerners would be overpowering the Southerners, who apparently, would have no more voice anymore in this debate--thus, they would not have the incommensurate influence they once had. One of the immediate causes of the Civil War was when seven Southern states (South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas) declared secession, thus formally removing themselves from being part of the United States; they elected Jefferson Davis as their president, and all this took place before Lincoln became president and could do anything about the matter. Another one of the causes of the Civil War was the reaction from the decision of the Dred Scott case, which stated that African-Americans, whether they were slaves or free, did not have the ability to become American citizens, and thus did not have the same rights as the American citizen (such as the right to sue in federal court). Also, Supreme Court Chief Justice Taney declared that states did not have the right to prevent a slaveholder from residing within a free state and practicing slavery there, practically allowing for slavery to take place across
