Storyboard Text

  • Missouri Compromise
  • But if the South has more power, they might spread slavery everywhere.
  • Then I get Maine!
  • Fine then I´ll draw a line and you stay there and I´ll stay here with my Missouri.
  • Deal!
  • Nullification Crisis and States' Rights
  • You need to put tariffs on foreign goods.
  • If you leave, then I will attack you!
  • Andrew Jackson
  • You better do as I say!
  • Ugghh fine I'll stay
  • No! Our economy relies on it!
  • South Carolina
  • I have my rights and I'm leaving!
  • Compromise of 1850 and Debate over slavery
  • North
  • South
  • So its decided! We'll vote for being a free state or a slave state.
  • Noo! But I was born free!
  • The 22 states of America are divided over the addition of a new want to be slave state Missouri. They were divided half and half over the power in Congress and they don't want to upset the balance. They compromised by adding Maine which became a free state and it settled. This also established the 36 30 line which divided slave states and free states.
  • Kansas Nebraska Act
  • Join me and give us the advantage!
  • North
  • South
  • Nullification is when a state can refuse to enforce a law if they think the law is unconstitutional. In the nullification crisis, the North saw the south refusing to enforce tariffs because it will affect their economy greatly. However, South Carolina didn't only refuse the tariffs, but they threatened to leave the Union. Andrew Jackson solved this by threatening to attack South Carolina, which somehow solved it. This was a dispute over states' rights because South Carolina tried to secede and refuse to enforce tariffs, which conflicted with national laws.
  • Dred Scott Case
  • Sadly for escaped slaves, they were returned to the south if they were caught in the north because of the Fugitive Slave Act, which was passed by the Compromise of 1850. What was also passed by this compromise was that states can vote on being slave states or free states. This caused even further debate over slavery because if one side gets too much power, then they might abolish slavery or spread it, which is not good economically for either side.
  • Debate over secession
  • I do solemnly swear...
  • The Kansas Nebraska act repealed the 36 30 line, which make it so that any state above the line is free, and any state below is a slave state. This caused a lot of controversy in Kansas because it was right on the line and influence from North and South caused fights, which gave it the nickname "Bleeding Kansas" because it was both metaphorically and literally bleeding.

  • Kansas

  • Join me and save our way of life!
  • This was a very controversial case, because Scott sued his owner because his original master died and left him in a free state, so he should be free. Although slaves usually win their freedom in these types of scenarios, he lost because the Supreme Court said that he was a slave and could not sue, and that Congress had no power to determine whether there is slavery or not, making the Missouri Compromise unconstitutional.
  • Supreme Court
  • Slaves can't vote! Also Congress has no authority to decide about slave states and free states!
  • Dred Scott
  • But that makes the Missouri Compromise unconstitutional!
  • Congress
  • During the election of 1860, the final straw happened when Abraham Lincoln, a republican abolitionist, was elected president. Some states were over it so they seceded from the Union. Georgia was split between rich farmers, which needed to secede to have a slaves to maintain their farms, and poor farmers, who needed the Union in order to maintain their farms. Eventually Georgia sided with the slave states with a vote of 208 to 89. Although Georgia wanted slavery, not everyone wanted to secede. Alexander Stephens was pro-slavery but against seceding, but he still became the vice president of the Confederate States of America because of his strong political background.
  • Abraham Lincoln
  • South
  • How'd he become president?! That's it I'm leaving!
  • No we need slavery to RUN our farms!
  • Rich Georgian
  • We need the Union to support our farms!
  • Poor Georgian
