Storyboard Text

  • Boston, Massachusetts: 1859
  • I support the Republican Party and will vote Lincoln.
  • Slavery must be abolished!
  • I do believe Lincoln does have the majority of the Union's vote.
  • "If the Republican party carries the country at the next Presidential election, shall we remain in the Union, or form a separate Confederacy? This is the great, grave issue."
  • Charleston, South Carolina: January, 1860
  • "The main feature of the Rebublicans is the abolition of slavery and, therefore, the destruction of the South."
  • YES! Form a Confederacy!!
  • November 6th, 1860
  • Before the Presidential election of 1860, people of Boston, which was part of the Union, show their support towards Republican candidate Abraham Lincoln.
  • South Carolina: December 20th, 1860
  • "The anti-slavery party contends that slavery is wrong in itself, and the Government is a consolidated national democracy. We of the South contend that slavery is right...South Carolina has declared secession directly as a result of slavery."
  • Meanwhile, in the South people don't think the government should be able to tell them how to live. Politician, Alfred P. Aldrich threatens to leave the Union if Abraham Lincoln is president. Clearly there is a strong division between the North and South.
  • March 4th, 1861
  • Abraham Lincoln becomes the first Republican president in American History receiving about 40% of total votes. This marks one of the most historically significant dates in American history and changes the future of the country.
  • Battle of Fort Sumter: April 12th, 1861
  • Attack!!
  • Quickly following Lincoln's election, South Carolinian congressman Laurence Massillon Keitt declares that South Carolina has seceded from the United States. Six other slave states quickly follow.
  • Abraham Lincoln delivers his first inaugural address, stating that secession is illegal and pledged to go to war to protect the Union. He shows that he won't back down from the Confederates.
  • "We will hold, occupy, and possess the property and places belonging to the government. The Union is undissolvable, and secession is impossible. While I would never be the first to attack, any use of arms against the United States would be regarded as rebellion."
  • On this date the Confederates bombarded the U.S. Fort Sumter, near Charleston, South Carolina, and this resulted in return gunfire and subsequent surrender by the U.S. Army. This is a very significant battle as it started the American Civil War.
