Storyboard Text

  • Slavery to A Civil War
  • We need slavery because our agricultural economy depends on it.
  • We understand that your economy is based on slavery, however we don't want to spread to new territories and states because we want more power in government.
  • Sectionalism and Nullification
  • Our state is more important than your union so to keep slavery and to keep you from putting tariffs on us we will leave it if that is what it takes.
  • No you will not, we will send troops down to the states that are seceding to stop you.
  • oh no
  • Compromises
  • Sure I'm fine with that.
  • How about this i can have 3 cookies this time but you can have 4 next time.
  • The dispute over slavery between the north and the south was due to the fact that abolitionist wanted to abolish slavery however many southerners wanted to keep it because of there economy. Also the abolitionist were angered when the supreme court justices ruled that Dred Scott didn't have the right to sue because he was a slave and could not sue for his freedom.
  • People at heart with disputes over slavery
  • Abe Lincoln
  • John Brown
  • Sectionalism and Nullification played a huge roll in states' rights because the southerns thought that some of there rights were being sacrificed to northern businesses due to tariffs and since they weren't allow to secede from the union they thought they had lost even more state rights. Many southern states supported the idea of "state first country second" So when the north placed high tariffs on the south they ignored the tariffs, and threatened to secede. Many Georgians didn't want to secede, but ultimately the General Assembly voted in favor of seceding from the Union.
  • Differing On State Rights
  • We want whats best for our states, farms and plantations.
  • We want whats best for our factories, businesses, and country.
  • many compromises were made to try to create less tension between Northern and southern states. The Missouri compromise let Missouri become a slave state if Maine became a free state, and that states north of the 36 30 parallel would become free states from the on. This changed when California was big enough to apply to be a state in 1850. This led into the compromise of 1850 passing the fugitive slave act. Georgia approved this compromise in The Georgia Platform.
  • The Event That Led to Secession
  • I, Abraham Lincoln, am the new president of the Union.
  • When Abe Lincoln was elected president, the north was happy and pleased, however the south wasn't because he was an abolitionist and didn't want slavery to be abolished. The Dred Scott case left the abolitionist angry because the supreme court justices ruled that since he was a slave he could not sue for his freedom and was sent back to his owner's family. John Brown planed a raid with his sons to help free the slaves and was sure they would join him, however none of the slaves showed up at Harper Ferry and they lost the fight. This caused his sons there deaths and caused him to get executed.
  • Dred Scott
  • The Northern and the Southern states' rights were both based off of very different things. The North was based off of Industry so there States' Rights were based off of what was best for industry. The South was based off of agriculture so there States' Rights were based off of what was best for agriculture. The South also based states' rights off of what was best for there own states. Both sides thought they were better then the other side which also caused a little conflict.
  • The Election of 1860 was what really forced the Southern states into seceding from the Union, because Abraham Lincoln was elected as president. The southern states feared that president Lincoln would abolish slavery because he was an abolitionist, and was part of the new republican party.
