Storyboard Text

  • North and South tensions form
  • Band aids are put
  • Dred Scott wants freedom
  • Im free
  • No you're not
  • As the northerners were arguing their side against the southerners over the main topics, slavery and state rights. One of the reasons state rights was huge issue was because of nullification which allowed a state to decide if a law passed by congress should be allowed in the state. Then slavery was a focus point because they were talking about how should slavery be spread or if it even should be legal.
  • Compromise of 1850
  • Missouri was a territory that had a population that was large enough to enter the union as a state. But the problem was that Missouri wanted to enter as a slave state and that would mean that the balance of slave and free states would break and mean in congress slave states would have more power. So the union decided that if Missouri enters as a slave state then maine can enter as a free state and that later on if a territory was above the 36 30 line then it would be a free state and if it was under it would be a slave state.
  • Kansas Nebraska act
  • Dred scott was a slave that was taken by his master to free states and when his mastered died dred scott went to the local court of missouri and sued for his freedom from his master's widow irene and during this time period it wasn't unusual to see a slave sue for their freedom and they would usually be granted their freedom. But in scotts case was that he was granted his freedom from a local court but irene repealed and at the end, the case after 9 years was sent to the US supreme court and they said that Blacks aren't people and there fore they shouldn't be allowed and ruled they were still slaves and also said that the Missouri compromise was unconstitutional and was appelaed
  • Abraham Lincoln won but lost
  • Due to the gold rush in California, California was able to enter the union as free state but since there was no slave state to equalize the power in the congress slave states were afraid that soon since congress would be made of more free states that slavery would be abolished so the compromise of 1850 was made and so over time all the states were arguing and in georgia their platform over whether or not they should accept the bill was still undecided until a man by the name Alexander Stephens came along and convinces over georgia governors to accept the bill and so the bill was made which gave the north more power in congress but in return the fugitive slave act was passed which meant any escaped slaves in the north would be returned to their master.
  • When slavery was allowed north of the 36 30 line many people both from the south and north moved to new territories trying to influence them to go one way because states were allowed to choose how they wanted to enter due to popular sovereignty but since northerners were meeting southerners blood was every where as fighting was happening everyday and so at the end Kansas entered as a free state and from here the Whig party split up and allowed for the republican party to form.
  • The election of 1860 is the last straw for the southerners because when Abraham Lincoln a republican who wanted to end slavery was elected president many riots heated up in the south and so then states from the south started to secede and when it was Georgia's turn to secede there was a debate where Alexander Stephens represented the side that didn't want to secede but at the end georgia seceded and joined the Confederate States of america.
