  • Hm... what states will be impacted by my act?
  • We must come together to make a change. My fellow Whigs are in!
  • Yes, I do believe that is what is needed. My fellow abolitionists believe that creating this anti-slavery society is one step closer to having equal rights for all!
  • Yes, we need this party to be formed. The Free Soilers and I do not believe in slavery spreading west!
  • "The Whig Party has been killed off... by that miserable Nebraska business."
  • When the Kansas-Nebraska Act was passed, Stephen Douglas knew that tensions would arise. Conflicts were created between the north and south on the issue regarding slavery.
  • Lets go and join a party that actually cares about our views, the Know-Nothing Party!
  • The Republican Party was formed when the Whigs, Democrats, Free Soilers, and Abolitionists came together and created an anti-slavery party.
  • Hmm... after all this arguing, who should we, the American Party, choose as our candidate for the 1856 election that is coming up? What do my fellow Know-Nothings think?
  • I think the previous president, Millard Fillmore of New York should be chosen to represent us! Anybody else agree?
  • You want me to be a candidate?
  • The Northern Whigs are arguing with the Southern Whigs regarding the Kansas-Nebraska Act. The Whig Party refused to work together. Due to this occurring, the Whig Party eventually fell apart. The senator from Nebraska was furious that the act caused the raucous
  • I, James Buchanan, was nominated as a candidate by the Democrats to represent the Democratic Party in the Election of 1856.
  • I, John C. Fremont, was nominated by the Republicans to represent that Republican Party in the Election of 1856.
  • Due to the fact that the Whig Party was destroyed because of conflicts, some Whigs and Democrats went to join the Know-Nothing/ American Party. The American Party is demonstrated as a thought bubble with an X over it because the party is called the Know-Nothing Party
  • During the convention, Millard Fillmore was chosen by the Know-Nothing, or the American Party for the election of 1856.
  • Buchanan of Pennsylvania, was the Democrats third option. Originally, the Democrats were in favor of President Pierce or Senator Douglas. They could not nominate either of them because they were strong supporters of the Kansas-Nebraska Act. Fremont was chosen by the Republicans because he was a strong supporter of anti-slavery.
