This storyboard does not have a description.
If Lincoln so much as steps foot in the White House, the Southern states will leave the Union indefinitely. You have my word. Make the right choice America.
So long, America. See you never!
The Election of 1860 was a big deciding factor for the Civil War because the South issued an ultimatum: If Abraham Lincoln won the election, the Southern states would secede from the Union.
Today we become a new nation. We become the CONFEDERACY!
Abraham Lincoln of the Republican Party won the Presidential election of 1860. Southerners were livid with the results.
Confederacy who? Not sure what you're talking about there, bud.
Southerners lived up to their word, and in December of 1860, before Lincoln was even in office, South Carolina seceded from the Union
Soon after, many other Southern states left, including Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, Texas, and Louisiana. They formed a new nation, called the Confederate States of America.
Lincoln refused the acknowledge the secession of these states, even as practically the whole South left the Union.
Though the states had left the Union, Lincoln said he would not attack the newly formed Confederacy, and would only defend the North if neccesary. He hoped to prevent a war from occuring.
