Storyboard Text

  • The Kansas-Nebraska Act played a major role in leading up to the Civil War.
  • Hi, I'm Stephen Douglas
  • First, thousands of pro and anti slavery supporters flooded Kansas to vote for their position to decide if they were a slave or free state by popular sovereignty.
  • There should be no slavery!
  • We need our slaves!
  • The second reason why the Kansas-Nebraska Act was a major cause of the Civil War was because in 1854, it repealed the Missouri Compromise of 1820 and applied the principal of popular sovereignty to the territories.
  • You can't take back what you promised! I want no slavery!
  • Let them do what they want. We need slavery everywhere!
  • The last reason why the Kansas-Nebraska Act was considered a cause of the Civil War is because it opened up the issue of slavery between the North and the South, in which there was no way a common ground could be found.
  • Slavery compromises were already made and they should not be undone!
  • Slavery makes our whole entire economic community run! Without it, we have nothing!
  • In my opinion, the Kansas-Nebraska Act was a major cause of the Civil War because both sides took an opposite firm stand, which led to feelings of anger and resistance. It got a little out of hand, but it could've been avoided.
  • We will do whatever it takes to abolish slavery. We are willing to fight for no slavery!
  • Fine! We'll fight as well! This will show you how important slavery truly is to this whole entire economy!
  • In conclusion, these are the reasons why the Kansas-Nebraska Act contributed to a cause of the Civil War and why it became a major event.
  • I hereby declare the beginning of the Civil War. Enough is enough. The Kansas-Nebraska Act tipped us over the edge. It is time to settle things once and for all.
