  • South
  • The Nullification Crisis was a fight over British Tariffs.South Carolina nullified tariffs placed upon them by the government and threatened to secede.To nullify means to resist or ignore.President Andrew Jackson then threatened to attack if South Carolina seceded from the union.This set of events set the stage for many controversies to come in the years ahead.
  • Kansas-Nebraska Act and Dred Scott Case
  • How did the Kansas-Nebraska act cancel it?
  • The court rules the Missouri compromise unconstitutional and cancels it because of the Dred Scott Case and the Kansas-Nebraska Act.
  • The North and the South had very different views on many controversial things.The South believed slaves were not people and that any state could secede at any time.They also went against tariffs.On the other hand the North had many abolitionist and believed secession was treason. They believed in popular sovereignty, not all states had to be slave like the south. Lastly they wanted high tariffs on European goods. The Missouri compromise was when,Missouri wanted to to come into the union as a slave state and Maine entered as a free state to balanced the the representation.
  • Election Of 1860
  • Congratulations Mr.Abraham Lincoln You are know our president!Because of your regent election the southern states have began to hold conventions to decide if they should leave the union.
  • One of the main causes of the civil war was the controversy over slavery.The south believed slaves were not people and depended on slave labor because of the agricultural lifestyle.The North had abolitionist who fought against slavery and did not need the slave labor.The Compromise of 1850 was when California wanted to enter as a free state and the south demanded something in return ,so both sides decided on the fugitive slave act.
  • The Debate over Secession,Significance of Alexander Stephens, and The Georgia platform
  • Georgia
  • Why can we just not figure this out.I agree with slavery but we do not need to secede. We can come to an agreement and not start civil war like we did with the Georgia Platform.
  • The Kansas-Nebraska Act was put into place when Kansas and Nebraska wanted to become states.The Act allowed citizens to vote if they wanted to be a free or slave state.The act canceled the compromise of 1850 and the Missouri compromise.The Dred scott case was when the Scotts fought for their freedom because their owner took them to a free state before he died.The Dred Scott case also ruled the Missouri compromise unconstitutional.
  • The Kansas-Nebraska allowed slavery anywhere not just below the 36,30 line and the Scott's were in northern states and not granted their freedom.
  • Why was it ruled unconstitutional because of my families case?
  • In the Election 1860 there were 4 candidates. A northern democrat, a southern democrat,the constitutional union party,and the Republican party.Abraham Lincoln was the republican nominee.The republicans won and the south was very nervous about abolitionist gaining power in congress.As a result of the election of 1860 southern states began to hold conventions to decide whether or not they should secede from the union.This led to succession of southern states.
  • Thank you we will have to address the southern states and tell them they can not leave the Union at anytime they wish and it is treason.
  • There were many different views on secession in Georgia.The arguments were typically with small farmers who did not own slaves and plantation owners who wanted and as they said needed the slave labor.When the South left the union and formed the confederate states of America Alexander Stephens was elected vice president,he believed in slavery but was against succession. The Georgia Platform was led by Alexander Stephens.It was when Georgia approved the compromise of 1850 and prevented the civil war for another 11 years.
