America was divided between the North and the South, slavery was the most important issue of the election of 1860
The candidates of the election were Abraham Lincoln, John Breckinridge, John Bell and Stephen Douglas
Lincoln won despite the fact that he did not win a single southern state.

Lincoln had no idea the brutality of the coming conflict.
Oh shoot! South Carolina just seceded, this is really bad.
