In document 5 it says “Free Speech, Free Homes, Free Territory”. This is saying that everyone should be free therefore slavery should be abolished. This scared the south because with him as president they believed that he would try to abolish slavery now that he had the power to. Since the South didn’t want to lose slavery they left the union. Secondly the south wanted to leave the union because Uncle Tom’s Cabin was published.
Jefferson, for example, switched from his strict-constructionist proclivities towards a looser constitutional interpretation involving the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. While there was nothing explicitly stated in the constitution about territorial acquisition, Jefferson accepted the deal for the good of the country. He also initiated the Embargo Act of 1807, which harmed the agriculture, mainly in the South.

The anger in the South is demonstrated in Isaac Cruikshank “The Happy Effects of that Grand System of Shutting Ports Against the English” in which the people portrayed complained of “warehouses [that] are full” and “goods [that] are spoiling” (Doc.
The perception of wilderness can be problematic. One of the most prominent points that Cronon made in his evaluation is the ideology that wilderness is an illusion to escape reality. This perception can be ambiguous because it segregates humanity from nature, by establishing the idea that wilderness is separate from everyday life.

In Chief Tecumseh’s speech, he describes the tyranny and conflict between the united states government and the native peoples. He explains that the natives should not sell their lands, for they have no right to do so because the land belongs to all people and not one group. Tecumseh shows this when he writes, “Sell a country?! Why not sell the air, the great sea, as well as the earth” (L. 30).

It is worth mentioning to say that this classic novel involvesrepeated use of the "N"-word and other old-fashioned terms now, but the book is obviously anti-racist and anti-slavery. Little children may be in need of need some help seeing how Twain employs the racist talk to demonstrate the folly of racism and the characters who adopt it. Huck has been taught to be racist, too, but he vanquishes this, even though he supposes doing so is not right-- a smart approach that may be too complicated for some of those young readers to grasp without being helped.
