Storyboard Text

  • I refuse to recognize the legitimacy of secession!
  • Less than a century after the Revolution which created the United States, a fierce civil war began, defining what kind of nation it would be.
  • Its cause was slavery. The Northern States endorsed that it was against religion, morality and economic development. That was proved by the Southern States which were unable to create a local market und were underdeveloped.
  • Abraham Lincoln won election in 1860 as the first Republican president on a platform pledging to keep slavery out of the territories. Seven slave states in the deep South seceded and formed a new nation, the Confederate States of America.
