Storyboard Text

  • Voting Day May 30th 1854! The decision if the territories are free or enslaved.
  • Vote Here!
  • Vote Here!
  • Slave
  • The southern states wanted to spread slavery across the country whereas, the northern states wanted the territories to be free.
  • Free
  • Both the north and south wanted desperately to get to choose the outcome of the new territories. Eventually, their disagreements turned into arguments, and in one situation called Bleeding Kansas, people were killed because they did not agree.
  • We need our slaves!
  • Slavery is wrong!
  • We must spread slavery throughout all the states!
  • While the Kansas Nebraska Act would make either the south or the north happy, depending on the outcome of their vote, it still tore the country apart. Neither side was prepared to stop fighting for what they believed in, and they despised the other for their opinion.
  • The north will not stop voting for these territories to be free!
