Storyboard Text

  • According to the Missouri Compromise of 1820 all states below the 36'30 line should be slave states. I say we let that decide!
  • To bad they don't know about the Kansas- Nebraska act which cancels out the Missouri Compromise.
  • Slavery Debate
  • Well didn't you hear? The Dred Scott case makes the Missouri Compromise of 1820 unconstitutional.
  • State's Rights Debate
  • Why can't you just be my dad's slave again!
  • Since I went to Missouri, which is a free state. I should be free!
  • Secession Debate
  • I thought winning the election would make me happy, but it did the opposite. The country is more divided than ever, and I can't help thinking it's all my fault.
  • It was a hard time for us slaves. The balance of the senate impacted everyones choices. The north wanted the new states and territories to be free. While the south wanted the new territories and states to have slavery. I just can't help but think back to when I was forced to come here. I hope No one has to go through what I have been through.
  • Nullification
  • If their our tariffs on British imports, the people will run to buy something from us because we have no tariffs.
  • So the debate between the Northerners and Southerners continues. This time the states are fighting their rights. The North believed that in order to function all states needed to follow the same rules set by the president. Southerners believed that each state should be free to make their own decisions based on what the state means. Some of the states didn't even follow the rules, but I'll get into that later.
  • Georgia Platform
  • It's decided. We had to do this since most people depend on slavery for their jobs or incomes.
  • The election of 1860 changed everything. After Abraham Lincoln, my personal favorite candidate, won the election, many states decided to secede. South Carolina was the first to secede, along with many others.
  • Alexander Stephans
  • We need to have more slaves.
  • I know I should have talked about this earlier, since it happened before the election, but I'm going to talk about it now. This is a flashback to the nullification crisis where North Carolina refused to accept laws by the federal government because they believed it was their right. In other words they nullified the rules. During the Nullification crisis their was a fight over tariffs on British products. The South didn't want tariffs while the North did. North Carolina even threatened to secede. Because of this, Andrew Jackson quickly threatened to attack South Carolina if they followed through with their secede threat.
  • If this country has tariffs no one will want to buy all of our goods we work so hard on. This would happen because Britain would start putting taxes on our goods.The people in the south like me live on this money.
  • The general assembly for Georgia eventually voted in favor of seceding, but it wasn't like that the whole time. The state was divided between non- slave holders and large farmers with a social and economic stake in the continuation of slavery.
  • It isn't necessary to secede.
  • Alexander Stephens was voted into office as Vice President of the confederacy during the Civil War. He is against secession, but believed in slavery. To me he seemed like a bad candidate because of his whole view on slavery. but I'm kinda biased because I'm a slave. He was voted into this position due to his strong political background.
  • Great, just the kind of president we need.
