Storyboard Text

  • Debate Over Slavery And States' Rights
  • South: Slaves are what help keep our economy going. With out them our country would fail.
  • South: The state government should chose what's best for them nor the national government.
  • North: Slavery should not be allowed to spread, slaves are people not property.
  • North: The national government should control what goes on at the state level, that way everyone is equal.
  • Compromise Of 1850
  • North: Because there was a power imbalance in the House in the Senate. Oh, your welcome!
  • I´m Alexander Stephens, I support slavery but, I dont necessarily believe in secession. My loyalty and experience in the government gets me the spot of VP of the Confederacy.
  • South: Why did California become a free state when there are ore free states that slave states? And thanks for the Fugitive Slave Act.
  • Kansas-Nebraska Act
  • North: The 36 30 is causing a lot of problems.
  • I´m Stephen Douglas believe that the state level should decide if the state should be a free or slave state.
  • South: Yeah, it should be repealed.
  • The north and south had two completely different views on everything. One reason for this is ... they lived in two different worlds, north was industrial and the south is agricultural. They always fought and never agreed.
  • Dred Scott Case
  • I'm Dred Scott, my family and I traveled with our master to Wiscosin, a free state. Soon after we returned, our master died. We believed in the "once free, always free" doctorate therefore we sued our master's wife and declared we were free.
  • The imbalance of power in the House and the Senate caused California to become a free state which really stirred up the Southerners. Alexander Stephens helped pass the Compromise Of 1850 because of the Fugitive Slave Act.
  • Election Of 1860
  • The Kansas-Nebraska Act repealed the 36 30 line located at Missouri´s southern border. Any new state below the 36 30 line was a slave state, and any new state above the 36 30 line was a free state. Stephen Douglas decided that the state should decide for themselves whether to be a slave state or free state.
  • Georgia's Thought's
  • There's much debate in the General Assembly about secesion. Georgia was not in favor of secession at first but seceded because the rest of the south did and that's where our loyalty lays.
  • Dred Scott declared him and his family free because their master died after returning from a free state. The Supreme court ruled in favor of Irene (Master's wife). This case aslo ruled that the Missouri Comprimsie Of 1820 was unconstitutional because congress can't control whether or not it's a free or slave state.
  • This declares the Missouri Comprimse (that enforced the 36 30 line) unconstitutional.
  • You can't do that, property can't sue, that's crazy.
  • When Abraham Lincoln won the Election Of 1860 is really where you start to see a very devisive country. The Abolitionists were happy about the election and the pro-slavery people were furious, so furious the southern states stared to cecede one by one.
  • I'm Abraham Lincoln, the Election Of 1860 is what got me here. I was not expected to win but with the beauty of the electoral college, I won the election. The southerners aren't very happy about my victory and are starting to secede. This country is falling apart and it's up to me to fix it.
  • Eventhough Georgia didn't believe in secession it was a high debated topic in the General Assembly. Georgia also didn't believe inthe higher tarrif bcebause it lowered the value of the product and the south started to lose lots and lots of money.
  • We also believe that the tarrifs should be nullified. Our products are going up in price and no one wnats to buy them we're losing money and this needs to stop.
