How the Civil War Came to Be Was the Civil War very “civil” at all? The Civil War had many factors that led into it but there was one major factor that started the war. Slavery was one of the biggest factors in the Civil War. There was a big issue that divided the North and South which was slavery. The wide spread of slavery was a big deal to most Americans; but some were not the biggest fans of the concept.
Prior to the Civil war, contentious issues had threatened to corrupt the national unity within the United States, but none more controversial and prominent than slavery. Congress, with multiple attempts, failed to seek compromises that pleased the North and South. In many scenarios, Congress often satisfied one side, but failed to do the same with the other, which created more turmoil. For instance, the Kansas-Nebraska Act and the Dred Scott decision were two prime examples of the unsuccessful compromises, revolving around the prominent disagreement: slavery. Conclusively, Congress failed to find a way for the North and South to coexist cordially, which in the end divided the two to a greater extent, making the Civil War inescapable.
TWO CENTURIES OF CONTROVERSIES I would now like to analyze one specific passage of the Declaration. This passage, originally written by Jefferson, was promptly removed before the signature of the fifty-five delegates.

The issue of racism continued to thrive well into the 1960s, where numerous underrepresented groups were denied privileges that the citizens of today take for granted, notably in education. These groups were often turned down or not considered when applying for colleges based on the color of their skin. Consequently, everything changed in 1961 when former president J.F.K issued an executive order to prevent this type discrimination in the workplace as well as in education. Fast forward to today, countless of these issues have been resolved, as well as laws except for one. Affirmative Action continues to be the defining factor for college applicants.
During the 1800s, slavery had become a hot topic in the United States, even though many did not even want to have the discussion about it. However, as we gained more land in the Mexican War slavery had to be addressed because the new territories were going to create an imbalance between the free and slave states. This imbalance would favor the South more than the North and give slavery the opportunity to spread further. Northerners, of course, did not agree with the idea of slavery spreading and worked to have legislation passed to support their perspective. Still, the legislation and the courts’ decision of cases related towards this matter, such as the Missouri Compromise of 1820, the Compromise of 1850, and the Kansas-Nebraska Act angered both the North and South and increased the sectionalism between them.
During this period of time African Americans were being treated without equality, since they were seen as a minority in the United States for their skin color. This led to have segregated public places all around America, because white people were seen as the dominant race, and could never imagen themselves cohabiting with other races, not even in their dreams. This type of problem was more likely to be visible in the south of the United States such as Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, South and North Carolina, Georgia, Florida and as well as Texas. However, segregation did not stop the white people for making the African American people be more aware of the procedures that they need to learn and live day by day, any African American who cross a boundary of the segregation signs would be punish by death. This procedure was very outrages for the fact that Black people were being lynched, for only making eye contact with a
Throughout history we have seen many forms of educational discrimination and inequality between minority students and white students. Throughout the 1950s and 60s most minority students in the United States faced discrimination and inequality especially African Americans and the hispanics. Most of these African Americans and hispanics attended segregated schools in the 1950s and 60s because they were not allowed to be in school with white students. In 1954 the supreme court case Brown v. Board of Education it was decided that segregated schools are unconstitutional and it violated the 14th Amendment. Today the school experiences of African Americans and other minority students in the United States continue to be substantially
Introduction: The Civil War is definitely the bloodiest battle fought in the history of America. As a result the war ended and halted many years of slavery in the country, and it also made a great deal of many political and social changes.
