Storyboard Text

  • The spread of slaves should not continue! Our lives don't count on those things like yours do! And forget state's rights!
  • Problems in the Country
  • We demand slavery! It's how the South's economy works. and state's rights should be increased!
  • Still avoiding tensions
  • In my opinion, Ross, South Carolina cannot secede under the Union's rule. It is against the law. Personally, I also think that the Missouri compromise cannot hold much longer.
  • The Missouri compromise is helping definitely. Though it had helped, we have got the news that SC has decided to try and secede. We will not allow this, and they will be attacked if they try.
  • That's not fair! It's SC's decision if they want to secede. Again! State's rights!!!
  • The Dred Scott Case
  • This is so unfair! He should be granted is freedom! Meh, I don't know much, but my friend, Matt, is a abolitionist. He is very angry with this and disagrees with you, Ross!
  • I'm a free man I tell you!
  • Forget that abolitionist, the South does NOT agree! Go back to the North John and leave this thing with us. He belongs to the slavery.
  • The North and the South have had tensions growing between them. The problem between slavery and state's rights are boiling between the North and South
  • Compromising through the tensions
  • John
  • I, Alexander Stephens, your Georgia governor, have decided to agree with Compromise of 1850. This will help us from starting a civil war.
  • Ross
  • As the two sides keep arguing, the Missouri compromise is passed. States added above the 30/36 line are free. Below the line becomes a slave state. South Carolina threatens to secede from the union. This is the nullification crisis.
  • Kansas Nebraska Act
  • OK Ross, PUT THE GUN DOWN, you don't have to bring it this far! It's my right to cast my vote for Kansas being free!
  • NO John. Kansas will become a slave state. People like you are stopping the right thing from happening. YOU MUST DIE. BLOOD WILL BE SHED.
  • Starting in 1837, the Dred Scott Case was not considered unusual case. Dred and Harriet Scott were slaves. They went to a free state with their master, and they declared they were free. Through out many different hearings, the Scotts were finally declared slaves. The supreme court said that they were property and that they could not filea law suit. The tension between the North and South grew due to this.
  • Seccesion
  • I, Robert Toombs, am representing the General Assembly of Georgia today. It has been voted (208 to 89) that Georgia will follow the plans of the South and secede from the Union!
  • In 1850, the Compromise of 1850 was passed. California was added as a slave state, while the Fugitive slave law was passed. Any slave found in the North would be transported back to the South. Alexander Stephens, the governor of Georgia, decided that Georgia would accept the Compromise of 1850. This was called the Georgia platform.
  • Meh
  • I agree with Alexander Stephens. The Compromise of 1850 will help protect us from a war.
  • The Kansas Nebraska Act was passed by Senator Stephen Douglas. He believed in Popular Sovereignty. This gave Kansas and Nebraska to choose whether they wanted to be a slave or a free state. When this happened, pro slavery supporters and anti slavery supporters flooded Kansas to vote. This turned into bloodshed between the two groups. It tore apart the country even more.
  • The election of 1860 was the final cause that led to the Civil War. The south knew that Abraham Lincoln did not express the same beliefs as they did, so when he was elected president, they finally decided to secede. Georgia, being in the South, also seceded after a heated debate.
  • I'm really sad right now. I definitely did not want this to happen. John would be really unhappy right now with the South, and i feel guilty for pulling that trigger now...
