We decided to use popular sovereignty in this territory.
You can come there and vote for it!!
Vote for slave state!!!!!!!!
Vote for free states!!!!!!!!!
At 1854,Stephen Douglas decided to make a railroad across the country.But people were fighting for where should the railroad go through.He decided to make it across the Nebraska territory.But there is not much people live there.
So he made a act to trick the people to come there called the Kansas and Nebraska Act.This act made the people in Kansas and Nebraska territory can vote for the state whether it will be free states or slave states.
This trick actually works.More and more people are rush in to the territory.The population is getting bigger and bigger.At first,people are separating their beliefs in a nice way.And then some bad thing happend.......
The border ruffians appeared.They were the people who support slavery.They were killing the people who support no slavery and burning their house.
At the end,they killed 200 people who support free states and 2 million worth of damage done.
The Anti-slavery group getting so piss off.They send the army to fight.The civil war began.
