Storyboard Text

  • Introduction
  • Hi! I am Abraham Lincoln. Today we are going to learn about the Civil War.
  • Cause of the War
  • There were many things that pushed the United States closer to war. One of those many things was my election as president.
  • On April 12, 1864, the Confederacy attacks Fort Sumter, officially staring the Civil War.
  • Start of the War
  • The Civil War was one of the the things that made America into what it is today. If it weren't for the Civil War, slavery might still be practiced.
  • Union War Efforts
  • One of strategies the Union used was blockading the Southern ports.
  • One of the strategies the Confederacy used was burning their supplies
  • Abraham Lincoln was a republican against slavery. This scared the Southerners because they thought he would abolish slavery when he was president. When Lincoln was elected, Southern states started seceding.
  • Confederacy War Efforts
  • The Civil War changed a lot of things in the U.S.
  • When several states seceded the some forts were still in the South. The South ambushed Fort Sumter, located in South Carolina.
  • Legacy of the War
  • The Union would capture and blockade Southern ports. They did this in hopes that the South would run out of supplies and surrender.
  • The Confederacy would burn all of their supplies so the Union would not be able to use it against them.
  • The Civil War showed the South that they weren't really that strong without the North. It made slavery less common.
