Finally, the ending to the debates was the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860. Lincoln won with 180 electoral votes by sweeping a majority from the north.

By the time Lincoln's inauguration in March, seven southern states had seceded.
Lincoln was against the cruel treatment of slaves, however. Lincoln was not considered as a abolitionist. He wanted to prevent the spread of slavery but also protect the slavery that currently exists. His main idea was to stop slavery form spreading.
By June 8th, 1861 eleven states broke all ties with the Union. The Eleven states developed a new country with a new form of government known as the Confederate States of American.
Led by the seceded southern states, including South Carolina, began the battle of the century-The Civil War (1861-65). The North vs South, Confederate States vs The Union, the war was under the presidency of Lincoln. The Civil War lead to a new country image including the ending of slavery.
