California shall become its own state and not have to worry about slavery!
Uncle Toms Cabin (1852)
Uncle Toms Cabin
Bleeding Kansas (1854-1861)
The compromise of 1850 would California become a free state. The fugitive Slave act was also made.The North felt happy about this because California was not for the recapturing of slaves and the South was on the opposite side of the North side, They like the Having the slaves around to do their dirty work for them. I picked this as one of my pictures because it started an argument because they were letting California do what they want.
John Brown's raid (1859)
Uncle Tom's Cabin was a novel about slave families being forced to separation.This novel was very important in the North. The North became aware about how bad it was. The North became more anti slavery. The South on the other hand mad slavery worse then it already was because the book came out. I chose this as one of my events because it made people start to realize what was happening and what stuff these slaves were going through.
Abraham Lincoln's Election (1860)
And our new president is Abraham Lincoln!
Bleeding Kansas all started because of pro slavery people voting illegally. With this happening John Brown killed 5 pro slavery people and a riot started for 3 year straight. The North was outraged and the South was overjoyed about this. I chose this as one of my events because it shows how ruff things were and how harsh people were about things.
The Battle of Fort Sumter (1861)
John Brown wanted slaves to fight for their freedom but all slaves refused to help him. With him trying to do this he was executed. The North had praised him and thought he was a hero but the South was mad at the North for their reaction. I choose this as an event because I thought it could show some people tried to help other slaves.
Its not gonna happen!
Can't we just let the slaves be free. Come join me and let them live their life.
Abraham Lincoln was elected president in 1860. When he was elected some people didn't like it so 7 states left America because they thought it was unconstitutional. He also had made a plan that was unsuccessful which caused lots of problems. I used this as an event because He did some things to help the country and some things to tear the country apart.
The battle of Fort Sumter all started when they had a base and the confederates attacked it and took it which started the war. The Souths leaders were mad. The North on the other hand had some soldiers go and fight. After the war had started more states left America and went and joined the confederate states. I choose this as an event because all the events that I have listed all some how lead up to this.
