Storyboard Text

  • i wish i was in the North...
  • The Start of Tension
  • north
  • south
  • The Missouri Compromise
  • The new states should be slave states!
  • What about BOTH free and slave states?
  • South Carolina's nullification & states' rights
  • as a southerner, i think the states deserve more power to make their own decisions.
  • how? all of the north surly agrees that the power needs to stay national!
  • From the beginning, the States south of the USA had a more agricultural lifestyle, depending on slavery and the expansion of slavery much more than the North, which was more industrial and didn't rely on uneducated slaves - because they didn't need them. When new states were joining the US - the question was weather they would be slave states, or free states. As you can infer, this was the start of tension between the North and South states.
  • Compromise of 1850 & Kansas-Nebraska act
  • let us compromise - if you let us have California, we will return any runaway slave back to you to be sold again.
  • popular sovrienty
  • When Missouri was entering the Union, the question was weather to make it a slave, or free state. The south wanted slave, and the north wanted free. What ended up happening, however, was the Missouri compromise. Missouri became a slave state, and Maine was entered as a free state, equaling everything. The 30 36 line was created, stating that any new state entering above the line was a free state, and any new state below was slave.
  • Election of 1860 & the Dred Scott Case
  • in 1832, the nullification crisis occurred. South Carolina nullified the tariffs placed by the national government, and threatened to secede the Union. South Carolina, along with all the other Southern states, agreed that power should fall more into the states hands, (states' rights) while the North was always for national power. South Carolina's threats created the spark for secession in Southern states.
  • Georgia's debate over secession & Alexander Stephens
  • i now declare you, Jefferson Davis, and you, Alexander Stepens, president and vice president of the Confederate States of America!
  • In the Compromise of 1850, to balance out the power between northern and southern states, California was entered as free state, and the North agreed that any runaway slave caught in the free states would be shipped back to the slave states & sold again. Georgia was the state that pushed for the compromise, to get it over with, and seal the deal. When the Kansas-Nebraska Act took place, (states could vote weather they were free or slave) this cancelled the whole meaning of the Compromise of 1850, and slave & free states no longer had to be in just the North or South.
  • the south has agreed on your deal.
  • there are slave states in the North now? how will i ever be free?
  • When Abraham Lincoln won the Election of 1860, southerners were furious. They greatly feared him electing Republican supreme court justices, who would side with abolitionists - not good for the southern want of slavery expansion. Around this same time : a man named Dred Scott and his wife are on trial - trying to sue for their freedom under "once free, always free." as the case continues to get more popular, it will eventually reach the supreme court, where Dred & Harriet Scott will be released and put back into slavery several times, and attend court 6 times. The court eventually declared that the Scotts were slaves, & therefore could not sue for their freedom, creating even more tension.
  • since you, in fact, are a slave, you are property of your master.
  • oh, when will we ever get to live freely?
  • The Election of 1860 had already created extreme tension between the North & South, and in December of 1860, South Carolina was the first Southern state to secede from the Union. Many Georgians did not want to secede, while others thought it was necessary. However, three months after South Carolina seceded, every southern state had seceded as well. They called their new nation the Confederacy, and made Jefferson Davis their president, as well as Alexander Stephens, a Georgia senator against secession but for slavery, their vice president. Stephens had contributed to the Compromise of 1850, as well as the Kansas-Nebraska Act.
