Storyboard Text

  • Disputes over slavery
  • We Northers want to keep our ways. NO SLAVES! You Southerns better not come to our states.
  • Let us keep our ways. We LOVE are slaves. They can do work for us without any pay.
  • Intensifying the Dispute
  • I don't help Northerns
  • The court rules that under the US Constitution the Scotts were slaves not citizens and,therefore,could not sue for their freedom in court.
  • I'm bleeding! Help me!!
  • State's Rights
  • We want to secede. NO MORE TARIFFS. We want to secede.
  • For the most part Northers did not believe in slavery because they were industrialized and had machines and factories to do their labor for them. Northers argued over whether new states to the union would be slave or free because of the balance of power in the Senate. Many people in each side of the union wanted to be their own country instead of united.
  • Georgia's Secession
  • The General Assembly votes that Georgia will secede from the Union
  • The Dred Scott case decision,involving Dred Scott and his wife struck a blow to the delicate balance of free and slave states, intensifying the sectional conflict between the North and the South over slavery. Bleeding Kansas involved lots of people who supported slavery and those against it like John Brown. He came to the area to vote and after lots of murders and bloody fighting Kansas became a free state.
  • Compromises Between North and South
  • Northern states believed that in order to function as one union all states needed to follow the same rule set forth by the President. Southern states believed in more state authority,each state should be free and make their own decisions based on what their state needs. The South did not want the tariffs (less money for farmers) but the North did (more money for factories). In 1832 South Carolina nullified the tariffs and threatened to secede the Union. I was illegal for a state to secede from the Union but it happened anyway in the South. South Carolina's act to secede triggered Mississippi,Florida,and Alabama to follow and leave the Union as well.
  • Secession and Election of !860
  • Many Georgians did not want to secede from the Union, while others thought secession was necessary. The divide in GA was mainly between small farmers and non-slave holders, against large farmers and slave holders who had a social and economic stake in the continuation of slavery. Ultimately the General Assembly voted 208 to 89 in the favor of seceding the Union.
  • YES!!
  • The Missouri Compromise was made to lessen tensions between North and South. The Missouri Compromise involved Missouri wanting to become a slave state,but that would make representation in the US government not equal for free and slave states, so the US admitted Maine as a free Northerners argued over if states would be slave or free because of the balance of power in the Senate. The Compromise of 1850 involved California entering the US as a free state, because free sates now had more power in the Senate, the Southern states demanded that run away slaves be returned to their owners if they were caught in the North(called the Fugitive Slave Act)
  • Blue=North(Union) Red=South(Confederacy)
  • Georgia approved the Compromise of 1850 because of the Fugitive Slave Act. The Election of 1860 caused Southern states to secede. In 1860 Abraham Lincoln,from the Republican Party,was elected President. He was an abolitionist(opposed slavery and the Southern states and his goal was to end slavery in the US). Right after his election,the Southern states held conventions to discuss whether or not they should secede from the Union.
  • Its glorious!!
  • Welcome The White House Mr.President!
