  • Missouri Compromise
  • Nullification Crisis
  • 1832
  • Andrew Jackson
  • If South Carolina decides to secede, then we will attack them!
  • I should be a free man! You brought me to a free state, and still claimed me as yours!
  • 1856
  • Slavery, States Rights, and the Dred Scott Case
  • You have no rights. I own you and always will.
  • We as a state should be able to make our own decisions such as slavery and other states rights!
  • Hello, my name is Squanto and I am a slave in the 1800s era. I will tell you all about the Antebellum. One of the first most important things was the Missouri compromise. Missouri wanted to enter the union as states, as it` had enough people. There was a debate over whether they should be slave states or free states because it would affect the representation in congress. Their agreement was to bring Missouri as a slave state, Maine as a free state, and to use the 36 30 rule (any states above line would be a free state and any below would be a slave state.)
  • Election of 1860
  • 1820
  • 1820
  • I am the new president of the USA and i highly oppose slavery and the idea of seccesion.
  • I am here in the oval office where president Andrew Jackson is threatening South Carolina into staying in the union. This shut down the state's decision to secede for a while, but in return it raised even more tension between the states.
  • Debate over secession in GA
  • We will all be arrested and put in jail if we are caught!! This is illegal!
  • Here I am witnessing many things in this courtroom. Dred Scott is pleading for freedom from his master after being brought to a free state. This also relates to the issue of slavery and states rights. States have been a big issue for a while now. The compromise of 1850 (california entered as a free state) and the Kansas Nebraska Act (people fought over whether they should be slave or free states) were supposed to fix the tension, but it only delayed it.
  • I BELIEVE THAT THE SOUTH SHOULD NOT SECEDE!! But um... I am the Vice President of the Confederation anyways.
  • 1860
  • This is Abraham Lincoln, the winner of the election of 1860. Most of the South HATED him. There were riots and rebellions everywhere because they thought he would take away their slaves.
  • 1861
  • The debate over secession in Georgia happened a year after the election. Those who wanted to secede argued that Lincoln would abolish slavery, while those who wanted to stay chose to obey the law. Georgia decided to secede after this.
  • Georgia SHOULD secede from the union. What have they ever done for us? Now that Lincoln's in charge, all of our slaves will be gone. What other choice do we have??
  • Alexander Stephens was the vice president of the Confederacy. The irony behind this is that he believed that seceding was not the right choice, but ended up being one of the top leaders of the seceding group. He was chosen for VP because he was one of the only politicians from the south.
