Uncle Tom's Cabin
Dred Scott vs Sanford
Election of Abrahram Lincoln
Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin had a large part in influencing people's views on the harsh truths of slavery leading up to the civil war. Abraham Lincoln allegedly greeted Stowe after the war with, "So you're the little woman who wrote the book that made this great war!"
Battle of Fort Sumter
Dred Scott was a slave who sued his master's widow for his freedom, arguing that his master had brought him onto free soil, therefore granting him is freedom, even if inadvertently. The Supreme Court case was brought to the decision that blacks had no such rights as white people. This angered abolitionists.
Battle of Gettysburg
The election of Abraham Lincoln was of course the most influential cause leading to the civil war. The South had already wanted to secede from the Union, and Lincoln's views on a half-free and half-slave country not being able to function did not sit well with slave owners.
